It’s dangerous along an NFL sideline.
Players, coaches, officials, cameramen, cheerleaders and even the media have been the victim of big hits while standing there.
One unfortunate Minnesota Vikings cheerleader took the brunt of the hit from Chicago Bears rookie receiver Javon Wims in the Bears’ Sunday victory over the Vikings. Wims knocked the cheerleader to the ground with a vicious but accidental hit from behind.
The unfortunate hit came when Wims was shoved out of bounds after matching a difficult catch near the sidelines.
The tweet shows that the sidelines aren’t for everybody.
That is one tough cheerleader taking a hit like that. pic.twitter.com/AkLj1eqyht

The best news came when the cheerleader popped right to her feet and continued with her cheering during the rest of the game.
She might feel the after effects for a few days. But she’s fortunate she wasn’t seriously hurt after the collision.
