Painful tackle for 49ers' Vernon Davis

In an especially painful NFL moment, San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis alleged that St. Louis Rams safety T.J. McDonald tackled him below the belt and wouldn't let go of his private parts.

"I'm still thinking about it. I can feel it," Davis said. "It was a crossing route. I made the play, and as soon as I got my hands on the ball, [McDonald] was grabbing me right there in that space, that area, and I kept telling him, 'Let go, get off me, get off me,' and he wouldn't let me go."

Davis also wrote on Twitter, "it should be a league rule saying that a defender can not tackle a player by his penis," saying it's "the most painful thing ever!"
