Terrelle Pryor asks Cody Davis to hit higher next time, not go for knees

Terrelle Pryor was on the receiving end of a low hit in his team’s win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, and he is asking the opponent who delivered it to kindly reconsider the way he tackles in the future.

While he admitted it was “not a dirty play,” Pryor tweeted a video that showed Rams safety Cody Davis diving at his knees after the Washington Redskins receiver caught a pass. Pryor requested that Davis aim a little higher next time.

There is no rule against what Davis did, so he is free to keep hitting like that if he so chooses. That is oftentimes the most effective way of making an open-field tackle, and you can’t argue with the results on that play.

The NFL has gone to great lengths to eliminate high hits on receivers in an attempt to cut down on head injuries, but many receivers have said they would prefer to be hit in the head over the knees any day. Stefon Diggs was the latest to make that declaration after he was destroyed by a defender on a hit in Week 1. Pryor obviously agrees.
