Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll didn’t beat around the bush Monday when asked his thoughts on the Trysten Hill tackle which sidelined running back Chris Carson.
“I was really pissed about that one,” Carroll said, according to ESPN’s Jessamyn McIntyre. “He really hurt him.”
Carson suffered a minor knee sprain late in the Seahawks’ victory over the Dallas Cowboys when Hill appeared to twist the running back’s leg.

Carroll wasn’t the only one not pleased with the play – linebacker K.J. Wright took to Twitter after the game and called for the NFL to address Hill’s tackle.
“This needs to be addressed ASAP!! Doing dirty dumb malicious shit like this can end someone’s season! This is clearly intentional, and getting fined isn’t enough. I’m all for guys playing hard, but I have zero tolerance for this,” Wright wrote.
Hill will reportedly be fined but not suspended for the tackle, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
