Chiefs OLB Cameron Sheffield Carted Off After Helmet-To-Helmet Collision

Scary moment here at Arrowhead Stadium for the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles game.

Rookie outside linebacker Cameron Sheffield went down on a helmet-to-helmet hit. The Chiefs tell us it was a neck injury and he's still being evaluated.

Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb hit running back Mike Bell in the flat for a three-yard gain. Sheffield came in on the play and collided with Bell's helmet.

Sheffield hit the ground after that.

Trainers came out to tend to him for 10-15 minutes before they loaded him on a stretcher and carried him out on a cart.

Just last week, the Chiefs had a similar situation with defensive back Maurice Leggett, who suffered a head/neck injury and was carted off the field. Leggett is now apparently going to be OK.
