Colts' Michael Pittman Jr. doesn't remember 'scary' Damontae Kazee hit that knocked him out: 'I didn't know where I was'

Dec 23, 2023

Indianapolis Colts receiver Michael Pittman Jr. says he doesn't remember the "scary" hit that knocked him out and resulted in the suspension of Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Damontae Kazee for the rest of the season.

Pittman discussed the injury with reporters Friday after clearing concussion protocol for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

"I honestly never saw him coming," Pittman said, per ESPN. "I was diving, I caught it, and then all of a sudden, I woke up and there's people looking down at me. I was like, 'Oh, s***, what just happened?"

The hit took place in Indianapolis' 30-13 win over the Steelers on Saturday. Quarterback Gardner Minshew targeted Pittman with a downfield pass. As the ball arrived and Pittman laid out in an attempt to catch it, Kazee dove and speared Pittman at high speed with a helmet-to-helmet hit.
