JJ Wilcox Broke His Own Nose, But He Didn't Let It Keep Him From Playing

During the first quarter of the Cowboys' crazy Week 1 victory over the Giants, Odell Beckham, Jr. got rocked.

And while everyone was immediately concerned for the welfare of Beckham, it appears the Cowboys' safety who applied the massive hit came off worse for wear.

JJ Wilcox hit OBJ so hard, he reportedly broke his own nose as a result.

Despite the injury, Wilcox stayed in for the remainder of the game.

Talk about sacrificing your body for the good of the team.
