Packers Receiver Carted Off on Stretcher After Brutal Hit From Eagles Safety

There was a scary moment in the Philadelphia Eagles first preseason game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeu Field on Thursday night when Birds' safety laid a brutal hit on receiver Malachi Dupre.

Dupre remained motionless on the ground for a few minutes and was later placed on a stretcher and carted off the field.

Both teams were down on a knee looking on with great concern as the severity of the injury was unclear.

Dupre gave a thumbs up as he was being carted of and received loud ovations from the Green Bay crowd.

Dupre's status was updated during the game to say he has movement and feeling in all of his extremeties and has been taken to a hospital for further evaluation.

Here's a look at the hit which both of the broadcasters, Mike Mayock and Scott Graham, on the Eagles Television Network believed to be clean.
