Kansas City Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen delivered a pretty clear helmet-to-helmet hit on Rashard Higgins on the play that led to a Chiefs touchback. But will he be punished for it?
According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, Sorensen will not be suspended for his hit on Higgins. However, the play will be reviewed for a possible fine as part of standard NFL procedures.
The play in question was a 25-yard reception by Higgins late in the second quarter. Higgins dove for the pylon but ate the hit from Sorensen, fumbling the ball out the back of the endzone for a Chiefs touchdown. Instant replay pretty clearly showed that Sorensen dove with his head and hit Higgins on the front of the facemask.
