Chiefs DC Bob Sutton doesn’t think hit on Connor Shaw was “cheap BS”

New, comments

Chicago Bears QB Connor Shaw thinks the hit from KC Chiefs DE Rakeem Nunez-Roches that broke his leg was a “cheap BS” play. Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton politely disagrees.

The morning after the Chiefs-Bears game when news of Shaw’s broken leg came out, the Bears QB tweeted and then deleted this:“Injuries are a part of the game & I understand that. This should've been avoided. No need for that type of cheap BS!”

75 percent of our readers don’t think it was dirty, according to this poll. Was it dirty?

“I didn’t pay that much attention to it,” Sutton said on Monday. “To me it looked like two guys that hit and as they slid down it rolled up. It’s an unfortunate thing. There isn’t anyone out there whether it’s coaches, players or anyone that wants to see anyone get hurt. Like we talked about here, we’d like to have everyone here available on our roster and I believe every NFL team wants the same.

“I didn’t personally see it like that. As a player, of course you’re disappointed. He’s trying to make the team and do a great job. That’s a tough injury to see happen in the third game. You feel for him and you understand his disappointment. I honestly didn’t see anything wrong with what happened. It’s an unfortunate part of playing a contact sport.”
