There is another use of the phrase: to become the victim of misfortune; to become derailed or thrown off course.
American sporting media has taken this use to another level, referring to a player of American football being hit hard enough by another player to be lifted off of the ground: "and in this play, Ray Lewis gets jacked up with a stiffarm by Eddie George on a third-and short run!"
