“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).”

Hill has been playing a with a fracture in his non-throwing forearm. Three weeks ago, a New York Jets player claimed the Lions were the dirtiest team he had ever played against.
