That was a bad set of circumstances. Hope he is ok.

Geez, that is one of the weirdest plays I’ve seen happen, just awful timing. Good thing Calvert kept his balance at the end there or it could’ve been another 200 LBS crashing down on Anisimov. Hopefully he’s okay and will make a quick and full recovery.
