My guess is a broke or dislocated jaw. Probably got so violent from a combination of the pain and knowing he would miss some time.
I only watched the game live and didn't rewatch the hit other than the initial replays during the game. I just don't recall him ever reaching up to touch his jaw after the hit. I can't imagine a man badass enough to break his jaw and not instinctively reach up and grab it, cradle it or touch it and try to figure out what was happening.
I also can't imagine a broken jaw being serious enough for the AVs not to just come out and say, "He broke his jaw. He'll be out for X number of weeks."
