Kurt Coleman Takes Near Decapitation at Hands of Trent Richardson Like a Man

Sep 10, 2012, 2:09 PM EDT

It was a big day for the Eagles secondary yesterday in Cleveland. DRC rocked the pink and picked two interceptions while Kurt Coleman nabbed two of his own but also nearly had his head taken off in one of the most visually stunning images of the first Sunday of the 2012 NFL season.

After watching the play in which Trent Richardson barrels into Coleman about fifty times, you get the sense his helmet wasn’t strapped on properly in the first place. But that didn’t make the helmet popping so high in the air any less awesome.

Look at the above photo. That has to be 10+ feet in the air.

We’re glad Coleman wasn’t hurt, and in fact, he said he loves a man’s game with some blood. From Philly Mag:

“They ask you, what day it is, what down is it. My head was fine,” said
Coleman. “Got a little bloody. It’s a man’s game and I love it. I love
it and I thank God for being able to play this game.”
