Redskins' Terrelle Pryor warns Rams defender to 'not take out knees'

Redskins' Terrelle Pryor warns Rams defender to 'not take out knees'”

As Pryor said, it wasn't a dirty play, but tackles of those nature can be terrifying for a receiver.

Terrelle Pryor was watching film on Tuesday, and while doing so, he sent Rams safety Cody Davis a small request: don't go at players' knees. Davis raced up from the secondary and hit the 6-foot-4 Pryor around his right knee. Pryor was running across the field when Davis took the Washington wideout down with a low hit to the knees.

Earlier in the year, Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham's hit, which was delivered by Briean Boddy-Calhoun, was far worse, but the result could have easily been the same.

"In my opinion they made rules about safeties hitting high and it being a problem".

This issue has been going on for a while, and Cardinals veteran WR Larry Fitzgerald apparently tells defenders he'd help pay their fines if they go high instead of low.

Pryor remains healthy and expected to be back in action when the Redskins host the Raiders this week on Sunday Night Football, but his comments and other comments like his should be considered as the league continues its efforts to make the game safer.
