Padres' Jurickson Profar collapses on field following dangerous collision with teammate

Padres manager Bob Melvin said Profar never lost consciousness

San Diego Padres outfielder Jurickson Profar was taken to the hospital after suddenly collapsing on the field

This was following a terrifying collision with teammate C.J. Abrams.

Profar, 29, was transported to UC San Diego Health for further evaluation after he collapsed on the field while walking back to the dugout

Both players were running to catch Tommy La Stella’s fly ball to left field when Abrams' knee made contact with Profar’s jaw while diving for the catch.

Abrams got up shortly while Profar was down for several minutes before eventually sitting up.

While accompanied by trainers walking off the field, Profar appeared to stumble over and fall down.
