Former Ohio State safety Malik Hooker injures knee on nasty hit

Former Ohio State safety Malik Hooker took a nasty hit during the Indianapolis Colts’ matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Hooker was chasing down Jags receiver Allen Hurns when Jacksonville’s Keelan Cole issued a hard, awkward hit on Hooker’s knee. It appears the hit was legal, but it caused Hooker, who did not see it coming, to leave the game.

The Colts announced Hooker would be out for the rest of the game.

Hooker’s rookie season was off to a great start. He recorded three interceptions in his first six games with the Colts and returned them for a combined 73 yards. The 15th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, Hooker also had 13 tackles in his first six games.
