It's unfortunate that Kimo's path to Palmer was affected by an offensive lineman who must not have known where Palmer was. But unfortunate is as far as this one goes.
I have watched the video probably 20 times, and Kimo is not propelled into Palmer. Steinbach did have his left arm on the backside of Kimo, but that didn't alter Kimo's motion. I mean, if he was pushed into Palmer, he would have accelerated into his knee, which he didn't. His speed never changed.
It's pretty obvious that he went low intentionally. Did he mean to tear his leg up? I don't think so, but he did go to far by diving right into his knees.
