Andre Ellington: Ripped hair didn't hurt
Apparently, getting your dreads ripped out isnât as painful as you would think.
Thatâs according to Cardinals running back Andre Ellington, who had a handful of his dreadlocks forcibly yanked out by Jacksonvilleâs Jason Babin on Sunday. It didnât look like the most pleasant experience, but the rookie said later that he barely felt a thing.
âAs far as him pulling it out, it didnât hurt at all,â Ellington said. âI took bigger hits than that.â
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.
