Likely there were much more damaging hits by Back Friday shoppers today, but it was entertaining nonetheless to see Cowboys tight end Jason Witten wipe out a cheeerleader during Thursday’s game against the Dolphins. Her name is Melissa Kellerman (middle, photo), and she’s been chatting all morning on Twitter about the collision that’s made her famous.

Not hurtin’ today, like some of y’all thought I would be! Our TE isn’t as tough as he looks… That or I’m WAY tougher than I look. ;)

I’m not the best at Jason Witten trust falls. ;)

Video below, plus here’s a great photo from today’s Dallas Morning News. (I think that’s her in the middle in the photo above).

Here’s her page on the Cowboys web site. From her bio: Behind my back, people say: I make funny facial expressions and I can’t stand still. Indeed.

Bikini photo of Ms. Kellerman? Sure, thanks to Darren Rovell, who also tweets:

Also, Ms. Kellerman’s Twitter account now seems to be protected.

    I’m sure that’s not the first time she’s been “flattened” by a player.

    Cute girl. But could she have anymore make up caked on her face?

    I’m sure she’ll be on the Today show come Monday morning.
