Brian Hartline Calls Keller Hit "Crap"

Dolphins_Brian_Hartline_2013The swinging of Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito?s helmet at him by Texans defensive lineman Antonio Smith has all but obscured a moment from the same game that had a far more permanent consequence for a member of Miami?s team.

Tight end Dustin Keller has been lost for the year after a low hit from Houston safety D.J. Swearinger, who has explained that he went low due to concerns that going high would draw a flag.

?It?s crap,? Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline told WQAM?s The Joe Rose Show regarding the explanation. ?I mean I think that, me personally, if you?re telling me, ?Oh, I?m so worried about going high or hurt[ing] the head,? you consciously went low then, is what you?re trying to tell me.?
