Seahawks RB Chris Carson says Trysten Hill twisting his leg was 'bulls---,' but Cowboys DT apologized
Dallas Cowboys Trysten Hill defensive tackle was criticized in Week 3 for a questionable tackle twisting the leg of the Seattle Seahawks who ran back to Chris Carson, who ended the game with a knee injury.
Unsurprisingly, Carson is one of those critics.

Carson spoke to reporters Thursday and gave his first reaction to Hill's tackle since that game in Week 3. His thoughts on Gregg Bell of The News Tribune:
"I thought it was some kind of cops *** - a ** game," Carson said Thursday in his first interview since the injury.
"But it is what it is."
The tackle in question occurred in the final minutes of the Seahawks-Cowboys game. Carson needed help off the field and was diagnosed with a first-degree knee sprain after the game. It could have been a lot worse considering how the device looked.
In addition to Hill twisting Carson's leg, Cowboys Cowboys defender Antwaun Woods fell on the back of Carson's leg.
Carson still managed to play in Week 4 - 80 rushing yards, 20 receiving yards, and two touchdowns against the Miami Dolphins - but is still on the Seahawks' injury report with a knee problem and limited practice on Wednesday.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he was "really pissed off about the injury" while Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy insisted the turnaround was not intended. Carson told reporters Thursday that Hill apologized to him after the game:
"Yes, he reached me," said Carson. "You know I read it and I appreciate his apologies for everything."
