Benjamin Watson ended up in the concussion protocol due to an ugly hit by Eric Reid, so you can forgive him for being a little concerned with the Carolina Panthers defense at the moment.
During the New England Patriots' Week 3 pre-season victory against the Carolina Panthers, Watson received a pass from Tom Brady, made a move and won a few yards before being overthrown. After Watson was attacked, Reid left his feet and put a shoulder in Watson's head. Reid stayed there to help Watson get up, but the hit was not only questionable, but also curious given the fact that the two had just come in a bit of Twitter beef the day before.
Reid denied that the hit had anything to do with Twitter beef, but many were skeptical to buy it – including former patriot linebacker James Harrison.
And if you look at some of Watson's Twitter activities since this game, you'll find that he's less than happy with Reid.
Watson was asked on Saturday afternoon if he was feeling better.
That comes after this tweet on Friday night.
Watson, 38, has retired to return to the Patriots, the team that signed him in 2004. He is suspended for the regular team's first four games of the season, so he has a concussion in the unfortunate case, he will have a little built-in time to recover.
