24 hours ago, Budda Baker had a very serious injury in the playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

On Tuesday, Baker gave everyone a very encouraging update while at the hospital and thanked everyone for the support he got after what looked to be a bad injury to his head and neck.

Baker was going for a tackle on Cam Akers and collided wrong with him, which left him looking unconscious.

Despite everything that happened, it’s glad to see that Baker is okay from the collision.
