Jaquan Brisker Believes Mac Jones Kicked Him in the Junk on Purpose

Chicago Bears

There was a moment on Monday Night Football when I saw that Jaquan Brisker was slow to get up and it had my heart skipping a beat. Brisker is one of the Bears’ best young players. And as a key member of the secondary, the last thing you want to see an important piece of the defensive puzzle out of action for any amount of time.

And then I saw why Brisker was in pain:

Sure, this made me cringe. And while I can relate to having been kicked in the beans, I’ve not had it happen to me on a football field, in front of a nationally televised audience, and with a quarterback running full speed at me. With that being said, I’m sure it hurt Brisker more than anything that I’ve ever experienced. But that’s not where the story ends.

Because Brisker feels as if Jones’ low blow was intentional. So much so that the Bears safety is lobbying for further punishment:

A fine? Suspension? OK, maybe a suspension is too much. But a fine is in play here. And we should keep an eye on the wire Saturday afternoon, which is when news of fines tends to leak out.

It’s a dirty play if Jones had ill intentions. And unless you have Jedi mind-control powers or a window into Jones’ head, it is tough to tell a player’s intentions. But the look of it is that Jones left his leg high on the slide in a purposeful manner. Or am I supposed to believe that this was either (1) an accident or (2) an example that Jones has no idea how to properly slide? C’mon, now.

At least Brisker was able to exact some revenge not too long after that:

… but still, Brisker sounds like he wants more. And I can’t say I blame him.
