Watch: Tom Savage Exits Game After Head Injury Leaves Him Shaking On Ground

Tom Savage was shaking on the ground after a hit.

Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage exited Sunday afternoon's game in the second quarter after a brutal hit left him shaking on the ground.

The Texans ruled him out with a concussion. After the game, head coach Bill O'Brien told reporters that Savage was evaluated after the hit and it was determined he was OK to come back into the game. Savage was then evaluated again and the medical staff did not like the results of the second test so he was pulled from the game, according to ESPN's Sarah Barshop. 

Savage was taken down by Elvis Dumervil and stayed on the ground shaking. He was taken to the injury tent on the sidelines to be evaluated but came back onto the field for the next possession. 

Watch the hit below:

Savage left the field before the end of the quarter to be assessed and evaluated in the locker room. T.J. Yates entered as his replacement.
