Michael Crabtree, the San Francisco 49ers receiver who was targeted on the team’s last three plays of Super Bowl XLVII, said Thursday that he lost vision after being hit hard in the face near the goal line on third down.Speaking to NFL Network in an interview Thursday, Crabtree said he took such a shot from Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith that he temporarily couldn’t see.“When the guy hit me, he hit me all in the face,” Crabtree told NFL Network. “I’m not tripping. I’m not one to whine about nothing, but he hit me all in the face and I couldn’t really see after he hit me.”Asked to again recount what happened to him, Crabtree said, “They hit me, I really couldn’t see. … Then [my vision] just came back. It’s not concussion-like. When you get hit in football, it’s going to feel like you can’t see. It’s going to feel intense. But it snapped back. It happens all the time in football.”Crabtree told the network that his sight returned before the next snap and that he had no complaints about the non-call on fourth down.Starting with second-and-goal from the 5-yard line, three pass plays to Crabtree all went as incompletions. The Ravens got the ball back on downs with less than two minutes left, San Francisco did not get the ball back, and Baltimore went on to win 34-31.

Teenagers do understand the dangers of using cellphones while driving —but they still use them, new research has found.Car crashes kill more teens each year than anything else, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.“Teenagers think about what they do behind the wheel in very different ways than we think about teenagers behind the wheel,” said Marilyn Sommers, professor at University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing.For the study, the researchers got 30 teenagers engaged in conversations on distracted driving.“The definition of ‘texting while driving’ is not the same for everyone,” Catherine McDonald, assistant professor in the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing, said. “For example, in their responses the teenagers would indicate that they did not text and drive, but then later would say something like, ‘At a red light, I’ll check my phone’,” McDonald noted.The interviewees made a distinction the interviewers had not. The study appeared in the journal Traffic Injury Prevention.
