Chris Long Delivered A Veteran's Day Salute After Returning A Fumble For A Rams' Touchdown (GIF)

Posted: Updated:

St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long seemed to have Veterans Day on his mind as he scored his first career touchdown. After scooping up an Andrew Luck fumble forced by teammate Robert Quinn, Long breezed 45 yards untouched to the end zone to give the Rams an early 7-0 lead over the Colts. Once there, the 28-year-old saluted the fans in the stands and watching around the world.

Long, a first-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, had previously given U.S. troops a "shout-out" as part of ESPN's fifth annual “America’s Heroes: A Salute to the Troops Presented by USAA” initiative.
