For the second week in a row, the Kansas City Chiefs are accused of playing dirty.
Chicago Bears QB Connor Shaw broke his leg in ugly fashion. Not that any broken legs are easy to watch but Shaw’s leg was clearly broken after he was pulled to the ground by Chiefs DE Rakeem Nunez-Rochez.
Earlier this morning, Shaw posted on Twitter that the hit was "cheap BS". (Update: He deleted it)
Injuries are a part of the game & I understand that. This should've been avoided. No need for that type of cheap BS! https://t.co/pekgWZPV0a— Connor Shaw (@cmshaw8) August 28, 2016
Uh-oh. Something similar happened last week when Jah Reid hurt a Rams lineman on a play where he was penalized for a chop block. The Rams were pissed at Jah Reid and let him know.
So is this hit dirty? It wasn’t penalized. See for yourself:
