Detroit Lions quarterback Shaun Hill accused the New England Patriots of trying to re-break his left arm during a sneak play on Thursday, according to a report on Mlive.com.

During the second quarter, Hill ran a quarterback sneak from the Pats' 2-yard line and extended his arms toward the goal line. He had been playing with a fracture in his non-throwing forearm suffered against the Giants five weeks ago and said he felt someone in the scrum trying to work over his limb on Sunday.


Bruschi: Five Observations

"That's why I eventually gave up the ball," Hill said, according to Mlive.com. "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 [it] wasn't seen [by officials]."

The Patriots had no comment on the accusation. Hill didn't score on the play but picked up a first down, and the Lions punched it in the next play. Detroit won that battle but lost the war 45-24.

Hill had no problem with the QB sneak, injury or no injury.

"I loved the call," he said, according to Mlive.com. "I loved the call. Absolutely loved it. I have no qualms about running that play -- one-armed or whatever. I loved the call."

This needs a poll question:

Worse scrum tactic, arm break or junk-squeeze?

This week McDaniels will put a bounty on Bradford's arm.

Hey, if it gets our pass "rushers" to the QB... I'm all for it.
