Jason Babin rips out Andre Ellington’s dreads, throws them to the ground


Rocking dreads as an NFL running back is a risky move – you have to realize that defenders, willing to bring you to the ground at any cost, will latch on to your locks if they have to. That’s exactly what happened to Cardinals running back Andre Ellington on Sunday when Jaguars linebacker Jason Babin came away with a chunk of Ellington’s dreads on a third quarter run.

UPDATE: Don’t worry guys, Ellington got his hair back.
