49ers’ Brandon Aiyuk cuts off the cameraman with the ball during touchdown celebration
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk scored two touchdowns in the team’s 38-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but on his second score 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 involved throwing the ball against the wall, but the cameramen lined up the wall at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Aiyuk nailed a cameraman near the groin.

Once he found out what he had done, Aiyuk was in disbelief. He and his 49ers teammates came to see the cameraman to make sure he was okay. He stood and laughed at the mistake.
Aiyuk only had two catches for 20 yards – both of those catches happen 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.
