Lions QB says Pats tried to break his arm

11/26/2010

According to several online reports, Detroit Lions quarterback Shaun Hill is accusing an unknown Patriots player of trying to re-break his left forearm during their Thanksgiving Day game.

According to Hill, the dirty play came midway through the second quarter when he ran a quarterback sneak on fourth-and-1 from the New England 2 yard line.

The ball slipped out of Hill's arms, but the referees had called the play dead.

“That’s why eventually I gave up the ball. Some guy was literally down there trying to break my arm which is already broken. Literally trying. I guess that wasn’t seen [by the officials],” Hill said, Hill said, according to MLive.com.

Hill had broken his left forearm five weeks ago against the New York Giants.

No word from the Patriots on the report.
