Matt Schaub was bloodied on a vicious hit by Broncos linebacker Joe Mays on Sunday, and it looked like the hit may have taken off a part of his ear.

Mocksession grabbed the shot you see above and added the caption “So Matt Schaub is now missing part of his ear.”

There is no confirmation that Schaub lost a part of his ear, but he grabbed it immediately and was bleeding from it. He appeared to at least suffer a cut on the ear, possibly from when his helmet went flying off.

Mays was penalized 15 yards for roughing the passer, a play after Von Miller was flagged for the same thing. Schaub ended up missing a play before returning. He finished 17/30 for 290 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in Houston’s 31-25 win. But more importantly: did he lose part of his ear on that hit?

Below is a video of the play:
