Brandon Aiyuk of the 49ers hits the cameraman with a ball during the touchdown celebration
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk scored two touchdowns in the team’s 38-10 win against the Arizona Cardinals, but on his second touchdown, he accidentally injured a cameraman.
Aiyuk caught his second touchdown pass late in the third quarter: a 13-yard pass from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Part of Aiyuk’s celebration was throwing the ball against the wall, but cameramen lined the wall of the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Aiyuk nailed a cameraman near the groin.

Once he found out what he did, Aiyuk couldn’t believe it. He and his 49ers teammates came over to check on the cameraman and make sure he was okay. He was and he laughed at the mistake.
Aiyuk only had two catches for 20 yards; both catches turn out to be touchdowns. It was the second two-point game of his career. He recorded his first multi-touchdown game in Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons, according to the team’s website.
