The first drive of Thursday night's game between the Chiefs and Chargers ended with something no NFL fan ever wants to see. Chargers tight end Donald Parham was knocked unconscious after impacting the ground in the endzone. Parham would have to be stretchered off and taken to a local hospital during the game.
He was diagnosed with a concussion. And on Saturday the TE shared a message with fans updating them on his status.
"I'm all good errbody," Parham tweeted. "You know can't nothing hold a real one down!"
"But I appreciate all the love and support from everyone," he continued. "It means so much to me and my family to know so many people are thinking about me and my well being!"
Parham appeared to have brought in a Justin Herbert touchdown before landing on the turf. The Charger's helmet immediately snapped back, and his arms stiffened up as his body lay motionless on the ground.
He remained down for several minutes. With his status unknown for a good portion of the game before the team shared that he was in stable condition.
Thankfully the 24-year-old seems to be on the road to recovery and in good spirits. Through nine games this season, Parham has grabbed 20 balls for 190 yards and three TD's.
