In addition to being a pretty good rookie running back, Cardinals back Andre Ellington also had a head of flowing dreadlocks.
After Sunday he has fewer dreadlocks, thanks to Jacksonville end Jason Babin.
On a catch by Ellington, Babin reached out and grabbed a hold of Ellington's hair. To Ellington's chagrin, Babin came away with some of his hair.

That hurts just looking at the picture. That's more than just a little bit of hair that Babin yanked out of Ellington's head.
NFL defenders haven't been shy about grabbing dreadlocks to slow down a runner (that's within NFL rules) but this is the first time we can remember the hair not staying attached.
