PLAYERS: Mark Webber

Via NESN:

It seems that no one gave the cameraman the memo that there was a flying tire rolling directly toward his head.

Red Bull driver Mark Webber turned into the pit lane for a tire change and took off before his right rear tire was fully attached. The tire flew off and bounded down the pit before colliding with a Paul Allen, a cameraman for FOM, Formula 1′s in-house broadcaster.

 Allen remained conscious after the collision but suffered a concussion and is experiencing chest pain, according to the BBC. He was treated at the on-site medical center, then taken to Koblenz Hospital by helicopter. He remains at the hospital under observation.

Red Bull was fined $38,650 for an unsafe pit stop release.

Check out the scary collision in the video below.

49ers reportedly 'shopping' LaMichael James

The San Francisco 49ers are reportedly “shopping” running back LaMichael James, per Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.
