When Martin stepped back to unpin him, Ballard fell and smacked his head. You can view the video below:

At one point, Ballard appeared to convulse on the ice as medics brought out a stretcher, but he got up and walk back to Dennis Gardeck Jerseys the locker room with a sistance. He was seen with cuts and blood on his face.

Ballard was conscious while he was taken to the hospital for evaluation and observation.

At this point, Coach Mike Yeo has no further updates on Ballards condition.

Ballard may need surgery, but, docs need to wait a few days for the swelling to subside.

Martin will not be suspended, for reasons outlined by Michael Ru so:

As of now, no Matt Martin hearing re:Ballard hit; likely reason: on boarding, if NFL Arizona Cardinals Jerseys you turn prior to contact, onus changes. (1/2)

(2/2) In other words, when Ballard turned to dodge the check (understandable), it's viewed as leading to incident/injury.
