Marshawn Lynch Ran So Hard That He Cracked Roman Harper’s Helmet (Video)

When you watch Marshawn Lynch run the football, it’s pretty easy to look at someone trying to tackle him and say to yourself, “That doesn’t look like a whole lot of fun.”

The Seattle Seahawks running back battled injuries and a lack of production at times this season, but don’t expect Carolina Panthers safety Roman Harper to say he believes Lynch has lost any of his trademark power.

On Sunday night, after the Panthers’ NFC divisional-round playoff win over Lynch and the Seahawks, Harper posted a video to his Instagram page detailing the true power of the running back’s running style. Harper’s video showed a crack in his helmet near the ear hole, which he claims came from a collision with Lynch.

What a big win today for this team, organization, & city of Charlotte. Big collision with #beastmode today and it almost destroyed my helmet. #keeppounding #rolltide

That obviously seems like a potential problem, but Harper seems no worse for the wear. A trip to the NFC Championship Game can’t hurt, either.
