NFL Will Review Adrian Wilson's Hit on Trent Edwards


The NFL will review Wilson's hit that knocked Edwards out of the game after just three plays. An NFL source said that it'll be reviewed not for a 'helmet to helmet' shot but instead for violating a rule called 'Unnecessary acts against a passer.' According to the rule, "a defensive player must not unnecessarily or violently throw him down and land on top of him with all or most of the defender's weight. Instead, the defensive player must strive to wrap up or cradle the passer with the defensive player's arms." If they follow the letter of the law, Wilson will likely be facing at least a fine, in my opinion. As long as he is suspended for a game, I'll be okay with it, but it'll probably be Friday before we know the outcome.
