NFL | Players always aware of injuries to opponents

Sat, 07 Apr 2012 06:38:32 -0700

Former NFL LB Antonio Pierce said former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams' speech, in which he told players to target injured opponents, is nothing new. "I've heard that speech from seven of the defensive coordinators I've played with in my nine-year career," Pierce said. "Think about it, if a guy knows he's going to get hit hard, he's not going to come across that middle." Pierce, who played under Williams with the Washington Redskins in 2004, called the coach's choice of words "a little harsh, they're a little tough," but talked about the awareness of an opponent's injured players. "Throughout the week we always knew who was injured and what body part was injured," Pierce said. "If he's not in the game, our chances of winning are higher. And that's what it's all about. It's all about winning."
