Redskins reserve defensive back Dashaun Phillips was carted off the field after his head and neck were stabilized following an apparent helmet-to-helmet collision with Cowboys running back Darren McFadden. The Redskins later reported that Phillips, a Dallas native who turned 25 on Sunday, was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, but he has movement in all of his extremities.

Redskins players surrounded Phillips as he was lying motionless on the field and was attended to by trainers. Meanwhile, fans at Dallas’s AT&T Stadium did the wave.

Some fans would argue that there’s never a good time to do the wave. Doing the wave while a player is being loaded onto a stretcher with a potentially serious injury is a particularly bad time.
