DeAngelo Hall makes no bones about the fact that he’s targeting some brittle bones.
On Monday night, Hall’s Washington Washington Football Team will take on the archrival Dallas Cowboys and their walking wounded.
“I want to get a chance to put my helmet on whatever’s hurt,” Hall said of his opponents, including QB Tony Romo (broken rib/punctured lung).
“Romo’s ribs — I’m going to be asking for some corner blitzes. If I know (RB) Felix Jones‘ shoulder’s hurt, I’m not going to cut him (tackle him low). I’m definitely going to try to hit him up high, so that’s just part of it.”
The Cowboys also have a battered offensive line and wideout corps, including a man Hall might match up with, Dez Bryant (thigh bruise).
“If you know something’s wrong with an opponent, you’re going to try to target in on that,” Hall said. “We’re going to try to definitely get as many hats on that team as possible.”
The Cowboys won’t issue an injury report until Thursday. But indications are that Romo and Jones will play, Bryant is more iffy, and WR Miles Austin (hamstring) likely will miss some time.
