Derwin James ejected from MNF for vicious hit on Colts' Ashton Dulin


Los Angeles Chargers star safety Derwin James was ejected from Monday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts for a vicious hit on wide receiver Ashton Dulin.

In the second quarter, Colts quarterback Nick Foles floated a pass to Dulin in the flat. Before Dulin could turn upfield, James came flying in and led with his helmet as he delivered a shot to Dulin's head to break up the pass.

Both players were visibly shaken up after the scary collision.

Dulin was immediately taken to the medical tent on Indianapolis' sideline. He then went to the locker room and was later ruled out with a concussion.

James, who also went into the medical tent, was flagged 15 yards and disqualified from the game for unnecessary roughness. The three-time Pro Bowler, who made a highlight-reel interception in the first quarter, appeared frustrated as he walked off the field following his ejection.

After Los Angeles' 20-3 win over Indy, Chargers head coach Brandon Staley told reporters that James was in concussion protocol.

The safety had been sidelined for Los Angeles' previous two games due to a quad injury.
