Minkah Fitzpatrick Of The Steelers Discusses Nick Chubb’s Injury
September 22, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News
The hit that injured Nick Chubb was discussed by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety. The injury suffered by Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb in Week 2’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Acrisure Stadium has generated a lot of criticism.
Because it was so horrific, the hit by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick at the goal line was not replayed on television. Before being carried off the pitch, Chubb’s knee was examined, and it is thought that several ligaments have been injured.
Fitzpatrick dived low on the play, and at the same time, Cole Holcomb struck Chubb from above, bending Chubb’s leg awkwardly. Almost immediately, there was discussion regarding whether or not Fitzpatrick’s hit was legal and if it should be seen as dirty.
Fitzpatrick addressed the impact, defended the action, and discussed how difficult it is to prevent a contact that might cause injury in the heat of the moment.
“Really unfortunate. A difficult injury, that. Sadly, it’s a requirement of the game we play, Fitzpatrick added. “You know, people are going to allege that the tackle was motivated by malice.
That is in no way the case. I’m a guy that will go out and play the game because I’m a competitor. Although I’m edgy and chipper, I’m not a nasty player. I won’t spend time here defending my integrity.
I am aware of the sort of player I am, and Chubb is also aware of this. I’ve played against him twice a year for the past five years, and I enjoy the challenge. He brings out the best in me, and I do the same for him. There is no chance that I would deliberately try to hurt someone there.
Fitzpatrick claimed that after the play, he walked over to Chubb to let him know that the injury wasn’t on purpose.
Fitzpatrick pronounced it to be a regrettable occurrence. “We play a rough game, and people get wounded. People may sit in front of a television and advise me on how I should have done something or suggest a course of action, but they have never really played the game. As I mentioned, it’s a horrible incident and I’m praying for Chubb because it’s a fast-paced game.
Fitzpatrick was hurt during the play as well, and he lay motionless following the collision. He ultimately had to leave the game due to a chest ailment and was transported to the hospital as a precaution.
Fitzpatrick claimed that if he didn’t go low and tried to make the runner take on less danger, he would be placing himself at a far larger risk.
“If I tackle a guy like Nick Chubb high as he’s running full speed downhill, and I’m stationary, I’m going to get ran over and I’m going to get concussed,” Fitzpatrick claimed. “I understand that this is an attacking game and that fans need scores, but defensive players are also individuals.
We must defend ourselves. When you go low when tackling huge men, it’s simpler and you suffer less damage to your body and head.
