Lions CB Chris Houston Believes Vikings Player Tried To Take Him Out
Lions cornerback Chris Houston said his ankle was fine after a 34-24 loss against the Minnesota Vikings.
Houston sustained the injury in the fourth quarter during Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson's 61-yard touchdown run. An offensive player for the Vikings landed on Houston's ankle during that play, but Detroit's cornerback believes it was a deliberate attempt to injure him.
"Lineman just fell on my ankle on purpose," Houston said. "I went to cut him, and as he went down, he put both knees on my ankle on purpose. It's part of the game."
Houston said he was unsure which Vikings lineman it was, but was baffled by what occurred.
"I was on the ground, so I didn't get to see who it was, but as he pulled, I cut him, he was flying over the top of me, and you could feel him land on my ankle on purpose," Houston said.
