Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall has made some noise with his latest comments regarding injured Dallas Cowboys starters Tony Romo and Felix Jones. Romo has well documented broken ribs and a punctured lung, while Jones separated his shoulder in last week’s game.
Both players could be in the team’s starting lineup on Monday night against the Redskins and Hall will not be holding back. In fact, Hall said today that he will be targeting the player’s injuries.
“Absolutely. I want to get a chance to put my helmet on whatever’s hurt,” Hall said. “Romo’s ribs — I’m going to be asking for some corner blitzes. If I know Felix Jones’ shoulder’s hurt, I’m not going to cut him. I’m definitely going to try to hit him up high, so that’s just part of it. If you know something’s wrong with an opponent, you’re going to try to target in on that. We’re going to try to definitely get as many hats on that team as possible.”
Hall’s comments could anger fans, but there is nothing wrong with them. As long as Hall plays within league rules, the injured players are fair game. The Cowboys, Romo and Jones all know that they are at risk when taking the field with an injury so it should come as no surprise that their opponent will be looking for any edge.
