49ers tight end Vernon Davis may never forget how he was tackled by Rams safety T.J. McDonald on Sunday. He also may never forget to wear a cup ever again.

As he tried to break the tackle, McDonald appeared to grab onto Davis' groin area to drag him down.

Understandably, Davis looked to be in a lot of pain.

He recovered though and still managed to make an incredible highlight, hurdling over a Rams defender for a touchdown.

Davis leaped over a few defenders earlier in the game and Paul Kitagaki Jr. of the Sacramento Bee managed to snap this amazing photo of him.
