Eric Reid nails Ben Watson with late hit days after Twitter disagreement

Cam Newton

For all the concern over Newton's surgically-repaired right shoulder, it was an injured left foot that ended the franchise quarterback's night in the first quarter of Thursday's 10-3 loss to New England and sent Panthers' fans into an online panic. "We'll see what the league decides, but this is tough".

The debut of the team's starting lineup, including quarterback Tom Brady, resonated with local audiences, as the WBZ-CBS broadcast generated the highest preseason Game 3 ratings since 2005. "I'm sure I'll end up getting a fine, but I'm just playing the game". Shortly after, he went to the locker room and was done for the night.

Watson left the field and didn't return to the game.

"No one entity owns this movement", Watson tweeted, specifically mentioning Reid. "We need each other". "It gives you a little better understanding of what they're looking for and how they're calling the game, which is helpful to us because we want to coach it properly so that we don't end up with any coach infractions".


There's even video of Reid trying to help Watson up after the hit.

According to NESN, when the tweet was explained to Reid, he replied: "There's a lot of people who don't agree with a lot of the comments that I've made".

Reid was penalized for the play and will likely receive a fine from the league within a week.

Reid was the first player to join former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" in protest of perceived racial injustice.
