Mike Gillislee, meet Dont’a Hightower.
On the third play of Sunday’s New England Patriots-Buffalo Bills game, Gillislee took a handoff from quarterback Tyrod Taylor, followed pulling guard Richie Incognito and ran directly into Hightower, who leveled the Bills running back with a bone-rattling hit.
The hit clearly rattled Gillislee, who was starting in place of the injured LeSean McCoy. He spent the rest of the drive on the sideline before returning on Buffalo’s next possession.
