Tennessee Titans LB Moise Fokuo drew an unnecessary roughness penalty in the game on Sunday and he says that the reason why he threw a punch was because he thought that Jeromey Clary was trying to break his arm:

“They were trying to put my arm in a blender,” Fokou said, via Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com. “That’s what they were trying to do. It was kind of like a fight or flight kind of feeling, just mano-a-mano, survival of the fittest. I felt that my arm was in a compromising position and when I got up my first instinct was to kind of defend myself, right, wrong or indifferent. That’s just how I felt.”

Looking back at the tape, it looks like Clary did grab his arm on his way down and rolled all over it.

Here are some images of the incident. You can see the comments if you hover over the images:

    Eye for an eye. We were playing against the Titans, after all. Surprised no one went out with a knee injury.

    Hmmm, I read somewhere that Clary is out with a broken clavicle.

    Is this the same Fokou that was trying to rip Mathews head off after the whistle? That same Fokuo that had cheap shots while linemen were on the ground, after the whistle?

      That was Griffen in the beginning of the game, that fool was going nuts on Mathews. Fokou seemed to want to get in the mix with the dirty stuff after Griffen and then they both got hurt and were kinda non factors but if this is how the dude felt I can see why he was playing gangster.

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks
