We told you that defenders were hitting Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick hard on Monday Night Football... but we didn't mean like this:
Yeah, that's Aldon Smith with a direct kick to RG3's groinal region (technical term.) It doesn't seem like Smith had ill will from first look -- he was getting shoved by an offensive lineman -- and if he did, he did a pretty slick job of disguising a very dirty play.
Griffin hopped around while trying unsuccessfully to point out to a referee that he'd just been kicked in the area to a referee:
But being incidental and all, there wasn't a ton the ref could do besides pat Griffin on the head.
And to add insult to injury, Griffin's throw was ruled to be caught by a receiver out of bounds.
