The New England Patriots will have to play the rest of the Super Bowl without their most productive wide receiver in 2017.

Brandin Cooks left the game early in the second quarter when he got unexpectedly flattened by Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins.

If bearing witness to immense pain thing isn’t your thing, avert your eyes.

Here it is from a different angle.

It wasn’t even the first massive hit Cooks sustained in the contest.

With the Patriots knocking on the door in the first quarter, he got stuffed a yard shy of the first-down marker in midair before getting viciously dropped.

After the hit in the second quarter, Cooks walked off the field and was escorted to the Pats locker room.

He won’t return.

Cooks finished the regular season with 1,082 receiving yards, two shy of the team leader, tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Midway through the second quarter of the Super Bowl, the Eagles lead 15-6.
