Although San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde was fined by the NFL for using the crown of his helmet against New York Giants LB Jon Beason, it’s RG Alex Boone who should be reprimanded according to Beason.
Beason who suffered a concussion on the game’s first series, believes the Rhino is the one to blame as he feels he made a bush league move.
I can honestly say that if I hadn’t gotten pushed in the back, I wouldn’t have been concussed. It’s unfortunate when another player, Alex Boone to be exact, can reach out, grab you from behind and then deliberately push you in the back,” Beason told the Daily News.
“It’s hard enough to stay healthy in this league. I think it was a coward move. Doesn’t show any sportsmanship, no regard for another player, their career. It could have been a lot worse. So it is what it is. I never saw Hyde, because I was too busy trying to keep my balance from being pushed from behind. So I wanted to get that out there. I hope it goes back to him.”
Boone told local beat writers that he was unaware of Beason’s comments and that he didn’t do anything intentional. “I’m sorry he feels that way. I’ve never thought of myself as a dirty player, intentionally trying to hurt anybody.”
