    I was going through some of the recent injuries we had where the opponent player delivered a low/high, illegal hit during the game after which the player went to IR or was out for the rest of the game.

    Question is: Did we do this to other teams in recent years? like delivering a bone crunching hit or a nasty one that took the player out of the game ??

    I don't remember any.. so please jog my memory.

    There have been some players that were injured (just like in virtually any NFL game), such as Knowshown Moreno and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for the Broncos, Ike Taylor, Vince Williams and Marcus Gilbert for the Steelers, etc. If I recall correctly Moreno wasn't even replaced in that game, though the others were; I do believe that all were available for the next game though.

    In terms of a season-ending injury, I don't know when the last one was. I recall Vince Wilfork gaining some notoriety for a hit on JP Losman back around 2006-07, but that was not a season ending injury. Wilfork was fined, but Losman only missed a few games.

    I'm sure that somewhere along the line there has been a season-ending injury to an opponent versus the Patriots, but I cannot recall when that was.

    McCourty (I believe) took an identical shot at Josh Gordon's legs during the same game, but Gordon wasn't injured.
