San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was on the receiving end of a rough tackle during Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams when Rams rookie T.J. McDonald appeared to bring down Davis by grabbing onto his groin.

Davis could be seen rolling on the ground following the tackle during the third quarter and later shared his displeasure with the play in a now-deleted tweet that read, "It should be a league rule saying that a defender can not tackle a player by his penis. #NFLthe most painful thing ever! #NFL"

San Francisco went on to win the game 23-13.
