Cole Beasley may be small in stature, but he makes up for it by being one tough customer.
The Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver looked to have suffered a serious injury after finding himself on the receiving end of a crushing hit from Adrian Amos during Sunday's game between the Cowboys and Chicago Bears.
Cowboys' quarterback Dak Prescott connected with Beasley on a third down early in the first quarter Sunday night, and Beasley who wound up paying the price. Amos flies in with a full head of steam and crushes Beasley with a solid hit to the ribs, sending him careening backwards. Beasley appeared to be in a lot of pain and needed time to gather himself before coming off the field.
Beasley would leave the game momentarily with a chest injury, returning shortly after. The play was initially ruled a first down, but Bears' head coach John Fox’s challenge reversed the call.
It's not everyday you see a player who can soldier on after taking a hit like this.
Here is the play:
