Eagles LB apologizes to Pederson for trash talking Cowboys
Kamu Grugier-Hill says he apologized to coach Doug Pederson for trash talking the Dallas Cowboys earlier this week.
Grugier-Hill told a Philadelphia television reporter on Wednesday: "Look at Dallas' history. They always choke. So we'll go down there and make them choke."
The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles (6-6) visit the Cowboys (7-5) on Sunday with first place in the NFC East on the line.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott responded Thursday first by asking "who" when told of Grugier-Hill's comments.
"Coach (Jason) Garrett has a great saying, and I don't know where he got it from, but winners worry about winning and losers worry about winners," Prescott added.
Grugier-Hill expressed regret to Pederson because he said he put his coach "in a tough spot."
Former LB Robertson killed in Texas car crash
Former two-time All-Pro linebacker Isiah Robertson was killed when the limousine he was driving skidded on a rain-slicked curve on a dark, rural East Texas highway and was hit by two other vehicles. Robertson was 69.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reports the crash happened about 10 p.m. Thursday on Texas Route 198 almost 6 miles north of Mabank and 50 miles southeast of Dallas.
One of the other drivers was treated for minor injuries. The other was not hurt.
The Los Angeles Rams drafted Robertson from Southern University in the first round of the 1971 NFL Draft. He remained with the Rams through 1978, then played in 1979-82 for the Buffalo Bills. He was named first-team All-Pro in 1973 and 1976 and was chosen for the Pro Bowl in his rookie 1971 season, as well as 1973-77.
