Philadelphia Eagles Rumors: Baltimore Ravens star linebacker Terrell Suggs accused of “cheap shot” on hitting Sam Bradford?

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford expressed himself about the hit that he took from Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs on Saturday’ss game between the two teams.

Bradford was anticipating to be hit a couple of times in his first game on Saturday night since tearing the ACL in his left knee a year ago. Suggs never hesitated to hit the quarterback on the Eagles sixth play, which was called a running play, when Bradford handed off the ball to running back Darren Sproles. Suggs saw the action and rushed from the the offensively left side, hitting low, clearly trying to hit the quarterback’s twice-surgically repaired knee.

“You would have to ask him,” Bradford told the media. “I think that’s what he was trying to do. But it’s part of the game. You’ve just got to move on.”

Said Eagles left tackle Jason Peters: “He was trying to take a cheap shot at the quarterback. I’m pretty sure he planned it. I mean, we’ve practiced against them all week, so he was probably thinking about it. I really don’t know him personally. He talks a lot and I think he’s that type of player — who is dirty and will take shots on the quarterback.”

Meanwhile, Suggs responded immediately on the criticism that he received, saying the Eagles should not call the play if they’re worried about their quarterback being hint.

“When you run the read option, you have to know the rules,” Suggs said, via The Baltimore Sun. “If you want to run the read option with your starting quarterback that’s had two knee surgeries, that’s on you. That’s not my responsibility to update you on the rule.”

In that game, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Baltimore Ravens, 40-17, with Bradford completing 3 of 5 passes for 35 yards. Mark Sanchez played great by completing 14 of 20 passes for 118 yards.
