Football is a contact sport, even if you’re one of the reporters covering the game.

Longtime FOX sideline reporter Pam Oliver wound up a little bit closer to the action than she could’ve expected when a warmup toss from Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Chandler Harnish winds up hitting her square in the face prior to the team’s preseason game against the New York Giants this past weekend.

Yes, it was a warmup throw, but where the heck is the receiver Harnish was looking to hit? On a positive note, Harnish did apologize to Oliver and on an even more positive note, Harnish, known as Mr. Irrelevant for being the last pick in this year’s NFL Draft, may have just changed his nickname to Mr. Bad Aim.
