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.

I saw that, he went down like a ton of bricks!

Glad he's ok, just a hammy. Dont the refs stretch before the game too?

You'd think they do, but thery are usually a bit older than the players, thier bodies can't take as much...
