Plus, just look at the body language. Does he stop, go "oh my god I just cracked this dude's face with a weapon!", and wave a linesman or trainer over? Nope, he ignores the poor kid and goes to chase the play. At first I was going to say it was simply a nasty, reckless play, but now I just see opportunity and intent. 15 games isn't enough IMO, and he's lucky to still be in the league.
