He dropped like a light

I heard this one on an NFL broadcast years ago, describing a player who was knocked out by a ferocious hit.  The malaphor is a mash up of “dropped like a rock” and “out like a light”,  both meaning to get knocked out immediately (although the latter also means to go to sleep quickly).
