SMU running back injured by ugly Texas Tech horse-collar tackle

ESPN

The Mustangs' Traylon Shead was carted off in the third quarter after this collision.

SMU's Traylon Shead suffered what looked to be a knee injury during a careless tackle along the sideline against Texas Tech. His knee bent beneath his body as Red Raiders defender Sam Eguavoen dragged him down by the collar of his jersey. He was very clearly in pain after the play, writhing on the turf as trainers surrounded him.

He was somehow able to walk to the cart, where he was removed from the sideline.

Shead, a senior formerly with the Texas Longhorns, had 34 yards from scrimmage at the time of his exit.

It wasn't the first such tackle by the Red Raiders, either:
