Green Bay Packers running back Jamaal Williams was carried out on a stretcher early in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night after a hit from defensive end Derek Barnett.

Williams caught a pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers early in the first quarter when he appeared to be wrapped up by two Eagles almost immediately. Barnett is then seen flying into the scrum headfirst and appeared to nail Williams directly in the helmet.
