Lions QB Shaun Hill: The Patriots Were 'Literally Trying To Break My Arm'

During Thanksgiving Day's Patriots-Lions game, with 6:32 left in the second quarter, Shaun Hill picked up a first down on a quarterback sneak on 4th-and-1 from the New England two-yard line. The Hill rush shows up innocently enough in the box score: "S. Hill rushed up the middle for 1 yard gain." But according to Hill, it was anything but innocent.

Hill, who suffered a broken left forearm against the Giants in Week 6, claims the Patriots were trying to re-break his arm on his QB-sneak

"That's why I eventually gave up the ball," he said. "Somebody was down there (in the pile) literally trying to break my arm, which is already broken. Literally, trying. And, uh, y'know, I guess wasn't seen (by officials)."

There's no names mentioned, but one has to think if Hill's allegations can be seen on video then someone on the Patriots' defense will be getting fined this week.
