VIDEO: Ref gets taken out by vicious elbow
Despite ending up in the hospital, Crawford was OK, but the look on his face as he lies on the floor tells a different story.
Crawford told The Associated Press he “felt an elbow hit me across my right eye and then I just went down,” following the tipoff.
“It was a little scary,” Crawford said, who added he did not have concussion symptoms. “I think after the elbow hit my eye, my head hit the floor. I was fully conscious. I was aware of what was going on. So it was a little scary. Just a little knot over my right eye.”
