Ok.

Listen, Brandon Spike isn't going all Pittsburgh Steelers and launching head first at defenseless receivers. He's just playing football. You think he's out there trying to end careers? No, he's out there trying to create fumbles.

He's an aggressive player, but not a dirty one. Calm down.

Also how can we really judge this all by the TV broadcast of Spikes flexing after Jackson is carried off. Do we know that Spikes was aware that Jackson was being carried off? Do you think Spikes knew that Jackson had a concussion at that point? Probably not.

Isn't it entirely possible that maybe Spikes was flexing to a teammate because he was bragging about forcing yet another fumble? Yes, that's just as possible as him flexing to taunt Jackson. Just because the TV presents something a certain way, it doesn't mean anything. If you think that perception equals reality on TV, you must believe that Criss Angel is fucking amazing.

"He'll get his," Choice said on Monday, according to John Wawrow of the Associated Press. "I don't like to see nobody get hurt, and then on top of that [Spikes] making fun of him while he's on the ground."

More from Wawrow:
Choice was referring to how Spikes flexed his arm and then mouthed off at Jackson and several Bills players while the running back was down late in the fourth quarter of a 37-31 loss at New England.

"You know it's cool to make a big hit," Choice said. "But it's not cool when somebody's down like that."

Coach Chan Gailey announced Jackson was diagnosed with a concussion and will not play Thursday, when the Bills (3-6) host AFC East rival Miami (4-5).

Gailey said Jackson began not feeling well during the team's flight home. Tests taken Monday morning confirmed that he had sustained a concussion.

Jackson was hurt at the end of a 9-yard catch and run, when he lowered his head while being swarmed by three New England defenders. Spikes got to Jackson first, lunging into the running back with his left forearm striking Jackson directly on the helmet.

These are the reasons that Bills players are mad at Brandon Spikes:
