Onetime Iowa wide receiver Damond Powell picked up an odd penalty Sunday in an Indoor Football League game.
Powell, playing for the Cedar Rapids Titans, scored a touchdown against the Arizona Rattlers and proceeded to pretend he was on the toilet and the football was his … excrement. Powell was penalized for the celebration.

Deadspin has a full video of the play, which included a nice catch-and-run from the former Hawkeye.
Powell played at Iowa in 2013 and ’14, catching 31 passes for 608 yards and 5 touchdowns. He wasn’t selected in the 2015 NFL Draft but signed with the Arizona Cardinals. In July 2015, he was shot twice, in the jaw and neck, outside his home in Toledo, Ohio.
Powell was waived by the Cardinals and ended up in Cedar Rapids, where he leads the IFL in receiving touchdowns (22) while playing for head coach Marvin McNutt, who starred at Iowa from 2008-11.
