Video: Ochocinco loses helmet in hit, staggers off field

Chad Ochocinco(notes) stumbled off the field Friday night after a jarring hit knocked off his helmet and left him dazed on the field.

The Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver had gone over the middle to snag a Carson Palmer(notes) pass, but ran into two Philadelphia Eagles defender, who leveled him in a bone-chilling collision:

That could have been a lot worse than it was. Kudos to the Eagles trainers for quickly reaching Ochocino, but not to Philly's Dimitri Patterson(notes), who seemed to taunt his opponent by standing over him a la Chuck Bednarik.

Later in the evening, Ochocinco took his to Twitter account to talk about the play. He wrote that he doesn't like getting hit like that anymore, playfully asked for some Tylenol and then gave some Twitter-love to the man who hit him, Stewart Bradley(notes).

This morning, Ochocinco Tweeted that he was on his way to a boxing workout. After last night, he has the punch drunk thing down pat.
