PLAYERS: Torrey Smith
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens
This is what it looks like to get tackled by your dreadlocks. Probably didn't feel to good for Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith.

Ouch: Torrey Smith gets tackled by the dreadlocks

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith makes a nice catch over the middle, has some green in front of him, and possibly the endzone in his sights. Then came a sudden, searing scalp pain.
