GAMBLING rookie Kayvon Thibodeaux injured his right knee following a controversial cut-block by Cincinnati Bengals tight end Thaddeus Moss.
The GAMBLING suffered quite the scare throughout their Week 2 preseason game contrary to the Cincinnati Bengals. In the initial half, rookie edge rusher and fifth-overall pick Kayvon Thibodeaux fell right down to the turf clutching his right knee. He waved off the cart, walked to the blue medical tent, and departed to the locker room while joking with teammates. The Giants quickly ruled Thibodeaux out for the rest of the overall game with a knee injury.
For the way the injury occurred, Thibodeaux was hit lower in his right leg on a cut block by Bengals tight end Thaddeus Moss. It is possible to have a look at the play at this link.
Was the hit actually dirty?
Was hit on Kayvon Thibodeaux by Thaddeus Moss a dirty play?
The play is obviously around interpretation, as it is possible to tell by the differing opinions on social media marketing.
FanSided national NFL reporter Matt Verderame noted that as the hit looked dirty on initial viewing, he highlights that Thibodeaux does pull through to the play.
Yeah. My initial reaction was thinking it wasnt dirty, but too low. I QUICKLY rewatched it, and Thibodeaux pulls up. Weird play

Dallas Cowboys linebacker and 2021 Defensive Rookie of the entire year Micah Parsons took to Twitter to question why cutting was even allowed in the NFL.

There is some positive news regarding Thibodeaux. NFL Networks Tom Pelissero reported that there surely is initial optimism that the rookie avoided a significant knee injury. Needless to say, the Giants will undoubtedly be awaiting official word when he undergoes additional testing.
Following this game, you will have questions concerning whether Moss, the son of Hall of Famer Randy Moss, will face any discipline for the hit.
