Phillips: Slauson’s block On Cushing ‘Unnecessary’
Posted By Sports Talk Florida On October 11, 2012 @ 4:33 pm In NFL | No Comments
Cushing tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the Texans’ 23-17 win Monday night on a low, rolling hit by Slauson. Cushing was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Slauson was not penalized on the play. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Wednesday that the play is being reviewed.
Phillips said Thursday that “it’s just unnecessary to hit a defensive player when he can’t see you.”
Slauson said Wednesday he felt like it was a “clean block” and he did not intend to injure Cushing.
