Rams safety Eric Weddle was carted off the field on Sunday after taking a vicious knee to the head during his team’s Week 1 game against the Panthers.

After Weddle’s helmet was removed, a large amount of blood gushed out of the side of his head and streamed down his face.

Watch:

Weddle was eventually able to sit up, but after his helmet came off, the extent of his injuries became clear.

Weddle was able to get up on his own and make his way onto the cart.

Not surprisingly, Weddle did not return. However, that didn’t stop him from congratulating his teammates as they came off the field after defeating Carolina.

Next week, the Rams will travel to New Orleans where they’ll face the Saints in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game. Whether Weddle gets cleared to play, remains to be seen.
