Should have been acute on chronic injury. Editing error. Should be fixed. Thanks.
They actually issued a statement of support. I just neglected to mention it.
I understand the logic of the call against Hilton, tbh. The in-game angles that night weren’t totally conclusive, granted, but the coaches’ film kind of shows that he tried to set a pick farther than one yard beyond the line of scrimmage, which is against the rules.
