Malcolm Jenkins hits Brandin Cooks

Brandin Cooks is out of Super Bowl LII.

The New England Patriots receiver was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion following a devastating hit from Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins.

The Patriots quickly ruled him out for the remainder of the game. 

A wide-open Cooks had caught a 23-yard pass from Tom Brady and was trying to evade Eagles defenders when Jenkins nailed him with a blindside hit.

Because Cooks had established himself as a runner, he was not considered a defenseless player and the hit was within the rules.

It was the first reception of the game for Cooks, who also had a one-yard rush, as the Eagles held a 9-3 lead at the time of his exit.
