Colts offensive lineman Quenton Nelson just disappointed a legion of fans by admitting the viral video of him screaming during Indianapolis’ game against Jacksonville was edited.
The rookie became a sensation after the Colts posted a video of him charging at Jaguars safety Barry Church and crushing him during Sunday’s game.

There is just one problem: Nelson said the video edited so him yelling from another play was superimposed on the footage of that specific play.
“I saw it got pretty viral on the internet, which was cool,” Nelson said, via ESPN. “…Yeah, I wasn’t yelling, not on that play. I don’t know how it got amped up like that.”
The Colts held off a late rally by the Jags to win, 29-26. Maybe some screaming will help if Indianapolis wants to keep the momentum going.
