In practice yesterday, rookie corner JT Ibe delivered a helmet to helmet hit on receiver Keith Kirkwood.  The hit sent Kirkwood to the hospital with a concussion.  Ibe was cut later that day. 

Looks like Matt Rhule is channeling his inner Jimmy Johnson.

If you have to try to make the team dirty hitting one of your own,  good riddance.

Let’s play coach:  I have a bubble defensive player, that during practice playing in such a way that during a game it would result in a 15 yard gain for the opposing team.

Most coaches would've berated him and given him extra calisthenics as punishment.  A few coaches would've cut him on the spot but I can't think of any other than JJ.  I think the fact that the receiver had to go to the hospital with a concussion tipped the scales.

If it was a guy who was unlikely to make the roster anyway, cutting him on the spot sends a message with the illusion of consequences.

The fact his behavior caused significant injury to a teammate could have been a factor.

And I doubt it was this one play was the sole reason for being cut.  More likely the straw that broke the camel’s back, with him already have made multiple serious mistakes in practice and he was someone who needed be perfect for the rest of camp to make the 53 cut.

It certainly sends the right message to the team about avoiding foolish penalties.
