HairWhoops, hair it is.

DR Jason Babin of the Jaguars brought down RB Andre Ellington of the Cardinals Sunday and ended up with a fist-full of dreadlocks in the process.

Ellington proudly displayed his dreadlocks outside his helmet during the game. That turned out to be a hare hair-brained move.

Babin briefly held the most unique trophy of the NFL season - a few dreadlock strains/extensions - before dropping them on the field after a tackle in the third quarter.

The tackle was legal, and at the least hurt Ellington's pride, if not his scalp.

But these are still the Jaguars. The Cardinals won 27-14.

And 1-9 Jacksonville remains the most "dread"-ful team in the NFL.

[Update: Ellington got his hair back after the game:

And he told his Twitter followers his hair was just torn and not ripped from his head:]

[Mobile users watch the hair-raising experience here.]
