Western Michigan player collapses after horrifying hit to the head Steamable/Screenshot

Well this is horrifying.

Western Michigan wide receiver Carrington Thompson made a big gain on a pass over the middle, but he was met by a Central Michigan defender who delivered a huge hit to the helmet.

A penalty was thrown, but the hit was ruled legal after review.

Thompson was a little slow to get up, but he made it to his feet and looked fine at first. However, after just taking a couple of steps, Thompson collapsed to the ground as trainers quickly came out to tend to his injuries.
