Colorado Rockies' Kyle Parker Perseveres Through Tough Game On Gridiron Against Auburn

Not only were Clemson fans holding their breath last night when Kyle Parker took a hard helmet hit to his back, but Rockies fans as well. Matt Hinton of Dr. Saturday on Yahoo! Sports describes what happened:

[...] Clemson quarterback Kyle Parker's anguished expression and body language throughout the second half was a rare moment of you-are-there brutality for viewers. After taking a helmet to the back in the third quarter, Parker spent the rest of the second half limping around, absorbing all kinds of punishment and looking alternately nauseous and narcoleptic on the sideline [while Auburn took a 24-17 lead].

And while Parker battled through all of that, his Clemson Tigers lost the game in overtime by a field goal. Clemson had apparently tied the game, but the field goal was waived off by a penalty. On the second attempt the ball went wide and resulted in an Auburn win.

In a couple of months, Rockies fans won't need to hold their breath on Saturdays any longer.
