Former Alabama and Oklahoma quarterback has been working through his first two seasons in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles. Today, he’s making headlines for what happened on the field, but after the game.

Following the Eagles’ win over The Washington Football Team, Hurts was walking off of the field, when near-tragedy struck. Eagles fans were leaning over the tunnel shouting at Hurts, some trying to get high-fives, when the railing along side the tunnel gave out. Fans tumbled out into the tunnel and Hurts assisted those who had fallen.
