Pryor acknowledged in his tweet that it was not a dirty play, but added, We all want success. Try to hit a little higher and not take out knees in future. Thank you.
Davis, who doesn’t know Pryor personally, believes the issue could’ve been handled differently.
He could’ve found me after the game or direct messaged me or something, Davis said. I don’t know if he had a complaint against the NFL about how the rules are written or just trying to drag me into a spectacle, but I respect him and respect his opinion. It’s football. We’re going to go out there and play. I wasn’t intending anything dirty.
