NFL Spike to the face

I seem to have a thing for blows to the head recently!  After that HS volleyball spike, I happened to catch sight of this story yesterday while I was at the Y.  An NFL receiver catches a TD pass (while his team is getting throttled), gets up and spikes the ball with every fiber of his body.  Unfortunately, the ball kicks off the turf and does some collateral damage to an older gentleman who was an usher.
Later in the game the player does a good deed and gets up after catching a 2-point conversion and hands the ball to the usher (although not the same guy.  He must not have been able to continue without his glasses, which were now in smithereens.)
[full disclosure: I watched that first video more than five times.]
