Landry says he’ll change the way he tar­gets blocks

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Jarvis Landry says he’ll change the way he tar­gets his blocks in the wake of his il­le­gal hit that briefly hos­pi­tal­ized Buf­falo Bills safety Aaron Wil­liams.

But while the Mi­ami Dol­phins re­ceiver ac­knowl­edged that Wil­liams’ in­jury per­son­ally af­fected him, he said he’ll ap­peal his $24,309 fine from the NFL for the il­le­gal crack­back block.

Bills coach Rex Ryan called Landry’s block dirty and de­lib­er­ate. Wil­liams is out in­def­i­nitely with head and neck in­juries, and he plans to wait un­til the off­sea­son to de­cide whether to play again, his fa­ther said.

Landry, who takes pride in his block­ing, was asked Wed­nes­day if the episode will change the way he plays.

“My phys­i­cal­ity, no,” he said. “My tar­get area, yes.”

Landry said he apol­o­gized to Wil­liams im­me­di­ately af­ter the play and be­fore the Bills safety was helped off the field. Landry said he hasn’t tried to reach out to Wil­liams since but may do so.
