Arizona Cardinal Andre Ellington plans to get his dreads stitched back in after the Jags Jason Babin ripped out a handful during yesterday’s game.

The NFL is a tough place, and a place where even hair pulling is allowed. Any hair that emerges from below the helmet is fair game, and in the third quarter of yesterday’s clash between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Arizona Cardinals we got a startling visualisation of that.

Arizona running back Andre Ellington attempt at a short gain was stopped by a pile of Jags, including defensive end Jason Babin, who emerged from the scrum with a rather large souvenir before dismissively dropping the dreads to the turf.

The good news is that the dreads were collected and returned to Arizona and Ellington claimed in a tweet post-game that he didn’t mind and that he planned to sow the dreads back into his hair.
