One of ? No... the toughest period.
Not taking anything away from Smitty... he's the best... but...
Eric Smith, the second player who hit Boldin was immediately knocked unconscious. He fared much better then Boldin, who not only was knocked unconscious, but dislocated and fractured his jaw and fractured his paranasal sinuses. In laymen’s terms, Anquan Boldin had a broken fuging face. He was carted off the field and taken immediately to the hospital where his injuries were diagnosed.
Boldin would undergo surgery to repair the fractures and, during his recovery, reportedly refused to take any medication to help with the pain. Oh, speaking of his recovery, he had the wires removed from his jaw three weeks early so he could return to playing. And to test his surgically repaired face, he decided to head butt his teammates in practice.
