Julian Edelman Took Helmet Hit, Was Wobbling, Not Checked for Concussion Before Patriots Eventually Scored Touchdown

Julian Edelman struggles to get up - Super Bowl

Julian Edelman took an uncalled helmet-to-helmet hit, went to the ground with his elbow, and then got up and proceeded to make his way down the field. Later, he crawled after catching another pass and going to the ground. Collinsworth attributed it to his hip, though it looked like he should be tested for a concussion.
