Broncos | John Elway critical of league for James Harrison hit

Denver Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway said the medial collateral ligament injury to WR Eric Decker (knee) at the hands of Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison was due to Harrison receiving multiple fines from the NFL for head shots. As a result, Harrison lowered his target when making hits. "The target is now lower," Elway said. "Harrison yesterday, because of the fact that he's been fined so often, really had no other option ... I don't think he intended to hurt Eric. But obviously because of the situations he's been in, he had to go low and stay away from the head. And it ended up costing an MCL sprain for Eric."
