Less than a week after NFL fans had to watch Ryan Shazier get carted off the field with not being able to move his lower extremities, another injury has now shocked the NFL world.
Sunday against the 49ers — QB Tom Savage got tackled in the end zone right on his head and in the midst of trying to recover, he started to shake violently with his arms extended in the air and most assumed he was having a seizure.

The report from the game stated he also started spitting up blood and tried to hide it from trainers so he could return to the game.
On top of having a seizure Tom savage was spitting up blood on the sidelines and was still willing to go back out there to play qb for the Texans that’s living up to your last name

Peterman literally just tried to take himself outta the game by diving headfirst into a linebacker. And Tom savage is trying to hide the fact he’s spitting up blood… big day for back qb’s and CTE

Shit Tom Savage was spitting up blood, but was trying to hide it so he could get back in the game

Nothing about this situation is okay. From him having a seizure and going back into the game to him purposely hiding the fact that he was coughing up blood so he could play.
