Chelsea star Didier Drogba was taken from the field on a stretcher, unconscious, after a terrible collision with Norwich goalie John Ruddy.

A bit outside of our usual Philly sports wheelhouse, but Chelsea star Didier Drogba was taken from the field on a stretcher, unconscious, after a terrible collision with Norwich goalie John Ruddy. Ruddy went to punch the ball away and instead caught an airborne Drogba very hard right in the head. Drogba looked to be knocked out by the punch, and fell flat from a very high point, landing without any semblance of bracing for impact. [Video Below]

EPL Talk has more on the scary scene and Drogba’s condition. He is said to have regained consciousness.
