You don't see the injury. All you see is his reaction.
Also, have you ever gotten the wind knocked out of you? When I played soccer in hs I had a similar thing happen to me as Powe did. I went up for a header, the other guy cut out my legs from under me, i fell straight on my back/ribs. Wind knocked right out of me, i nearly blacked out. I'm sure i looked as dazed as Powe. As for whiplash, in the scenario I gave that would be a viable reason for why they held him out for the rest of the game. Its not uncommon and the way he landed could have more than induced a significant amount of discomfort from, yes, whiplash.
I have no clue what powe will be diagnosed with. I like many others am inclined to guess its a concussion. I also had the wind knocked out of me in a high school hockey game. I was speared, accidentally, right under my ribs. I almost blacked out and everyone thought I was seriously injured. Had it not been the third period I would have been able to come back in the same game. That's why I don't think powe just had the wind knocked out of him.
