Video: Georgia Cornerback Rico McGraw Injured After Taking Slap From Celebrating Coach

Today has been full of injuries in the college football world, but Georgia cornerback Rico McGraw's has to be the weirdest. On the sideline after a play, special teams coordinator Mike Ekeler got very fired up, and gave McGraw a celebratory slap to the helmet, which apparently injured the freshman defensive back.

After the play, former Bulldogs superstar Todd Gurley joked about not being surprised. Apparently Ekeler is always a pretty high-energy guy.

Obviously this is a freak injury, and we hope McGraw is okay. Ekeler might have to go with celebratory handshakes for a while.
