Jarvis Landry has made it clear his hit on Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams in October wasn’t meant to hurt the player, although it knocked him out of the first game of this season between the Bills and the Dolphins and sent Williams to the injured reserve list. Landry also said it was never on his mind to take a cheap shot or dirty hit on his opponent.
The Buffalo Bills don’t believe Landry.
They have their own feelings on the subject as they prepare for Saturday’s rematch between the team in Buffalo:
“We know what happened, we know it was a dirty hit but if we win the game I think that’ll hurt them more than doing anything out of the ordinary,” said Buffalo cornerback Stephon Gilmore when asked if there might be retribution against Landry.
“It was a dirty hit. I mean I’ve seen it, it was right in front of me. We can’t go out there and play with emotion. We know it was dirty but like I said, we go out there and get the win then that takes care of everything.”
Bill cornerback Nikell Robey-Coleman said the memory of that hit will not affect the way the Bills play. It cannot if they wish to have success. But he’s not thrilled with Landry, either.
