Marshawn Lynch broke Roman Harper’s helmet

Monday January 18th, 2016

Marshawn Lynch may have carried the ball just six times for 20 yards during Sunday’s 31–24 loss to the Panthers, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t do damage.

In an Instagram video after the game, Panthers safety Roman Harper revealed that Lynch actually cracked his helmet.

“For everybody that thinks ‘Beast Mode’ isn’t alive, tackling him today broke my helmet,” Harper said. “I definitely have proof. ‘Beast Mode’ is still alive.”

That’s pretty scary! Harper made four tackles during the game, none harder than this one.
