Video: Jets Coach Sal Alosi Trips Dolphins Player

This is arguably the craziest story of the weekend in the NFL, which is saying something considered a game was canceled in Minnesota because a stadium roof collapsed... Miami Dolphins player Nolan Carroll was running down the sidelines on a punt coverage assignment, when New York Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi clearly stuck his knee out to trip the player. Carroll tumbled down and was initially injured on the play. He was fine after the game however.

Not only is it a monumentally stupid thing to do in the first place, you have to wonder how Alosi ever thought he could ever get away with such a thing. In today's NFL, there's a camera covering every inch of the field. As we learned with the Minnesota stadium collapse, there's even cameras on when no one is there. So this guy did something absolutely egregious that he literally no chance of getting away with. The coach did apologize after the game.

"I made a mistake that showed a total lapse in judgment. My conduct was inexcusable and unsportsmanlike and does not reflect what this organization stands for," Alosi said in a statement. "I accept responsibility for my actions as well as any punishment that follows."

No word yet on what the NFL or the Jets will do with Alosi.
