Sadly,Jaxon Smith-Njigba suffered the most unlucky injury against Titans

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba suffered an injury scare Sunday on a terribly unlucky play against the Tennessee Titans.

Seattle was behind 7-3 early in the second quarter and faced a 3rd and 4 at the Titans’ 10-yard line.

Smith-Njigba attempted, but was unable, to catch a ball from quarterback Geno Smith of the Seahawks for a touchdown. Smith-Njigba collided with Nissan Stadium’s cushioned wall in Nashville as a result of his momentum while attempting to grab the ball.

It’s bad enough that Smith-Njigba crashed into the barricade, but his left knee struck the only part of the wall where the concrete was visible with great force.

The Ohio State alumnus was observed clutching his left knee and screaming in agony. Soon later, he limped into the tunnel accompanied by medical personnel.

Smith-Njigba, though, quickly allayed Seahawks supporters’ concerns over his injury status. On Seattle’s following drive, the 21-year-old was able to come back and even manage to catch a six-yard pass.

With less than two minutes remaining in the game and his side down 17–13, Smith-Njigba made what was maybe the biggest grab of the game, and his knee appeared to be in fine condition.

In traffic on third-and-14, Smith-Njigba grabbed an 18-yard throw to extend the Seahawks’ late drive. A few plays later, Seattle scored the game-winning touchdown.

After some misfortune in the first half, Smith-Njigba and the Seahawks were able to rebound for a 20-17 win over the Titans.

Smith-Njigba finished with six catches for 61 yards — just two yards shy of his career high.
