Ellington proudly displayed his dreadlocks outside his helmet during the game. That turned out to be a
hare hair-brained move.
Babin briefly held the most unique trophy of the NFL season - a few dreadlock strains/extensions - before dropping them on the field after a tackle in the third quarter.
The tackle was legal, and at the least hurt Ellington's pride, if not his scalp.
But these are still the Jaguars. The Cardinals won 27-14.
And 1-9 Jacksonville remains the most "dread"-ful team in the NFL.
[Update: Ellington got his hair back after the game:
And he told his Twitter followers his hair was just torn and not ripped from his head:]
Hair is all good. Nothing serious. Look worse than it really was. S/o to the dread heads! Will get it stitch back in. Birdgang got the win!— Andre Ellington (@Dre23_LilBit) November 17, 2013
[Mobile users watch the hair-raising experience here.]
