Rams LB Bobby Wagner flattens protestor who gets on field





SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Bobby Wagner delivered one of the biggest hits on a person who got onto the field.

The Rams linebacker flattened the protestor who ran on the field with a device emitting pink smoke late in the second quarter of Los Angeles' game against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night.

With less than a minute left in the first half, the person got onto the field and ran across while being chased by security as the pink smoke filled the field.

As the person ran toward the Rams sideline, linebacker Takkarist McKinley came toward him before Wagner came off the sideline and laid him out with a big hit.

The protestor was taken off the field by security and the game quickly resumed.

Earlier in the game, another person tried to get onto the field with a similar device, but was stopped by security.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Panthers are down, but not out, entering their bye - thanks in large part to the emergence of D'Onta Foreman. The journeyman running back has eclipsed 100 yards rushing in four of Carolina's last six games, and the Panthers (4-8) remain in contention in the weak NFC South after finding an identity on offense. Carolina is 1 1/2 games behind division-leading Tampa Bay (5-6) entering the weekend.
