Former Florida kicker Caleb Sturgis wasn’t able to participate in the Philadelphia Eagles’ exhibition game Thursday night after suffering an unusual injury during warmups.
Sturgis wasn’t wearing his helmet while out on the field getting loose before the game and was struck in the head by a stray punt, giving him a concussion.

The Eagles are in Pittsburgh taking on the Steelers in a preseason game. Sturgis is competing for a roster spot with Cody Parkey who was in line for all the kicks Thursday after Sturgis was injured.
Being on the field before a football game can be hazardous.
