PITTSBURGH (Jan. 15, 2005) -- Head linesman John McGrath pulled a hamstring while trying to keep up with Jets punt returner Santana Moss' 75-yard
touchdown and had to leave the AFC divisional playoff game in Pittsburgh.
As Moss was running undefended down the Jets' sideline, McGrath grabbed at his hamstring and went down without colliding with any player. He was taken
to a locker room for observation and treatment.
McGrath was replaced by John Schelyer, a backup official assigned to the game.
The play occurred with three minutes left in the second quarter.
