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 Lambeau Field on Thursday night when Birds' safety Tre Sullivan 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.

The play took place early in the fourth quarter with the Packers leading, 17-9. Both players are fighting for a spot on their respective rosters.

Dupre's status was updated later in 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.

This is ... this is just embarrassing.

Maybe we'd be better off with Joe Lunchpail from the 700 level running Washington.

And Tony Williams should know better as he represents parts of South and West Philadelphia in his senate district.

We can probably give the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, a pass? Maybe? 

I don't know. This is just bad form.

This video from KYW's Mike DeNardo comes from an opening of a grocery store in the Grays Ferry section of Philadelphia. The politicos were trying to show some team spirit with the Eagles hosting the Vikings this week in the NFC Championship game. Hopefully, that game goes much better than this horrific chant attempt.

Philly police preparing for potential Super Bowl madness

Be prepared.

That’s the Boy Scout's motto, but it’s also the motto for the Philadelphia Police Department heading into this weekend’s NFC Championship Game at the Linc between the Eagles and Vikings.

Win or lose, there’s going to be a big reaction from fans once the game goes final and one of the locations the police expect a lot of activity is in the area of Frankford and Cottman Avenues.

Here’s the notice that was sent two days ago that was posted on the Mayfair Civic Association Facebook Page.

Hopefully the fans will be out in full force to celebrate after the game this Sunday, but either way, we hope no people, property, or horses are harmed. However, it’s good to take these steps to be ready.
