[Kansas City.com] Robert Geathers, the Bengals’ defensive end who delivered the knockout blow to Trent Green in the third quarter, said he was pushed into Green by a Chiefs player.
(Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said it was Eddie Kennison.)
“I didn’t even think I hit him that hard,” Geathers said. “It certainly wasn’t helmet to helmet. I know I felt I got pushed from behind and I hit him with my shoulder.”
“Then I ran off the field. It wasn’t until a little later we saw he was hurt. Then you just start praying and hope you see some movement from him.”
Geathers wasn’t penalized, although Green, who had been scrambling, clearly was into his slide.
“I really couldn’t tell he was sliding,” Geathers said.
Geathers said he planned to call Green on Sunday night or today to find out more about his condition.
