Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin treated Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington like a red, I mean dread headed stepchild on Sunday, ripping out a good chunk of the rookie’s dreadlocks, then displaying his trophy to the bloodthirsty crowd. Behold, I ripped out hair!
Not sure if this has ever happened before, but with all the long hair flowing out of helmets every Sunday, it was definitely bound to happen.
As Babin picks up the dreads, he performs the final indignation of dismissively tossing them to the ground.
But all’s well that ends well. Ellington was able to get his dreads back, although we’re not sure what he’ll do with them.
