During the Houston Texans' win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Houston quarterback Matt Schaub was on the wrong end of a devastating and illegal hit by Broncos defender Joe Mays. How devastating? He lost part of his earlobe on the play.
Watch the play.
Schaub laid on the ground for a while before being taken off the field. Not only was it an illegal hit, it was the second penalty in a row on the Broncos. As Schaub walked off the field, he looked with disdain at the Denver players. Want to see why? Look at what the hit did to Schaub's ear. (Don't scroll down if you're squeamish.)
Yeah, he's missing a good chunk of his earlobe. Though Schaub did return to the game, he didn't complete a pass in the next two offensive series. It was an ugly hit with an ugly result. Mays should fully expect to hear from the league's office on that hit this week.
