Video: Florida receiver makes catch despite receiving bone-crushing hit
The University of Florida football team laid a beatdown to the University of Kentucky, 38-0, in the Swamp on Saturday. The Gators improved to 4-0 with the victory, however, experienced a scary moment late in the second quarter when receiver Jordan Reed was the recipient of a vicious hit by two UK defenders.
Reed, streaking down the center of the field, caught a pass from QB Jeff Driskel, and while securing the catch was hit simultaneously by two Wildcat defenders in the process. The hit was so violent that it dislodged Reed's helmet nearly five yards in the opposite direction. Somehow Reed managed to hang on to the ball and dust himself off as if nothing had ever happened.
UK safety Mikie Benton was flagged for a penalty and it's likely that both Wildcats could face suspension from the SEC for their actions.
