This is the hit that Huber suffered the injury on last night as Steelers punt returner Antonio Brown was running a punt back. If you look closely at Huber’s head at the time of impact, you notice that Gavin’s helmet was able to slip under Huber’s helmet just a tiny bit, possibly being what caused his jaw to fracture.
