Christian Ponder got his face busted up Saturday when the Redskins’ Reed Doughty hit him while he was on the ground (the play was flagged and Doughty will probably get a fine). And that wasn’t even the play that caused him to leave with a concussion. The concussion happened early in the third when London Fletcher hit him helmet-to-helmet. A pretty bad day for young Christian, to put it mildly.
The good news is, Ponder’s concussion symptoms have cleared up and he can play Sunday. So his head is fine. I wish I could say the same for his face which was looking pretty messed up at his Wednesday presser. My crappy screencap from the presser makes it hard to see but he has a big boo-boo on his nose and a cut on his lip. That only makes him hotter, right?
