Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields was slow to get up after a targeting hit, but he toughed it out and threw a touchdown on his next play.
Justin Fields is a great quarterback. And a tough one too.
He proved that on Friday night when he was smashed on the field by Clemson’s James Skalski.

Despite being slow to get up and clearly impacted by the hit, Fields came back into the game after just one play and threw a strike to give the Buckeyes a 28-14 lead.

It takes guts to do that. It’s even more impressive knowing a limping Fields had to go straight to the medical tent after the score.
