Cribbs actually suffered three hits to his head on the play. The initial hit was Ellerbe's helmet or shoulder pad making contact with Cribbs' helmet and knocking it off. Cribbs then hit his helmet-less head on the turf. Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reported that Cribbs also had a spike hit him in the face as he was down.
