Ellington: Ripped hair didn’t hurt

Apparently, getting your dreads ripped out isn’t as
painful as you would think.

That’s according to Cardinals running back Andre
Ellington, who had a handful of his dreadlocks forcibly yanked out
by Jacksonville’s Jason Babin on Sunday. It didn’t look
like the most pleasant experience, but the rookie said later that
he barely felt a thing.

“As far as him pulling it out, it didn’t hurt at
all,” Ellington said. “I took bigger hits than
that.”

Babin tossed the dreads onto the field after presenting them to
the crowd like a gladiator, but Cardinals defensive end Frostee
Rucker was nice enough to retrieve the chunk of hair and return it
to his teammate. Ellington tweeted after the game that he plans to
have the dreads sewn back in.
