Watch: Malcolm Jenkins obliterates Brandin Cooks with vicious hit
New England Patriots wide receiver Brandin Cooks is one of quarterback Tom Brady's best receivers alongside Tight End Rob Gronkowski.
Cooks totaled 1,082 yards from 65 receptions during the regular season, and his blazing speed gives New England the option to take the top of defences, but he will no longer be an option for Brady and head coach Bill Belichick after the 24-year-old was leveled by Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins.

Cooks made a routine grab after going across the middle but decided to cut to his outside, instead of maintaining his route, where he met a waiting Jenkins.
The Eagles strong safety ran over the top of him and Cooks will not return to the game with the Patriots confirming the news on their official Twitter account.
