Brandon Jacobs may have connected on a few punches against the Redskins last night, but it’s the Giants RB who has to seek medical attention today.
Jacobs told ESPN 1050 radio host Brandon Tierney earlier this morning that he’s headed to the dentist – thanks to Washington defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.
Said Jacobs: "Haynesworth connected on one. It was a pretty good one on me. I wasn’t looking. I didn’t have him in sight. I was worrying about [No.] 23 (Hall) and [No.] 92 got a good one off me."
The 6-4, 264-pound Jacobs took on both DeAngelo Hall (a 5-10, 195-pound CB) and 6-6, 350-pound defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth in the fourth quarter of Monday's 45-12 win over Washington.
Jacobs and Hall started tussling after Jacobs couldn’t hang on to an Eli Manning pitch early in the quarter. But Jacobs did come away with Hall's facemask...and punches ensued. Haynesworth – the good Samaritan that he is -- jumped into the fray, and Jacobs couldn’t resist throwing another punch for good measure.
Though Jacobs expects to be fined by the league, he doesn’t think his involvement in the fight warrants a suspension.
“Nah, I shouldn’t get suspended,” he said on air. “It was an open hand. I didn’t throw a closed fist punch. That’s not even illegal to be honest with you, if you want to go by the book.”
