The Ravens quarterback was scrambling on a third-and-10 from the Dolphins 20 and slid near the 10-yard line. As he slid, Alonso, a Dolphins linebacker, lowered his shoulder and connected with Flacco’s head, knocking off his helmet and clearly stunning him.
The reaction was swift, especially from Ravens center Ryan Jensen, who immediately went after Alonso.
Upon request for comment, the Eagles said they supported the legislation.
The Eagles believe that Senate Bill 529 (pn 854), which was recently passed unanimously by the Pennsylvania State Senate, is an important piece of bipartisan legislation that will help many Pennsylvania citizens become productive members of their communities, the team said in a statement.
Spencer Drango, a fifth-round draft choice in 2016, will start at left tackle, which means he will have to deal with Griffen.
Drango practiced as a backup until now, which means he worked at a variety of positions each week. This is the first time he has been able to work at one position.
I just go out there and do my best, stay calm and play as hard as I can for the guys around me, Drango said. I’m excited, nervous, all of them. I think it is good to be nervous. Even Joe told us he still got nervous before games. You have to embrace it and use that as fuel.
Jackson said the Browns have contingency plans to help Drango block Griffen. Matt Lengel, a blocking tight end, was elevated from the practice squad on Wednesday to fill the roster spot vacated when Thomas was placed on IR.
