Deshaun Watson was okay after this play, but it doesn’t look like he should have been.
Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson is doing everything he can to try to will his team to a victory over Alabama on Monday night. That includes spinning through the air like a helicopter.
Watson, on a 14-yard run in the third quarter, was spun into the air after taking hits from two different Alabama players – Reuben Foster and Minkah Fitzpatrick. He wound up coming up just short of a first down. Check it out:

Watson and the Tigers trail 17-14 late in the third quarter. The final period should be awesome.
