Joey Bosa Apologized To Christian Hackenberg On Twitter For Ripping Off His Helmet

Ohio State defensive lineman Joey Bosa had himself a game Saturday night, terrorizing Penn State's offensive line for 2.5 sacks (one was the game-winner) and 2.5 tackles for loss. On one play, however, some Nittany Lions fans were up in arms after it appeared that Bosa intentionally grabbed quarterback Christian Hackenberg's helmet on the way to the ground. After the game, Bosa took to Twitter to hit up Hackenberg and apologize.

There are many who believe that both Bosa and Hackenberg are good enough to have solid professional careers. Perhaps this won't be their last encounter. Either way, good on Bosa for reaching out.
