I think you'll see a trend develop. I read that DJ is trying to not hit as high as he did here. Not that he's purposefully trying to take out players knees, just that he's not aiming high like he used to here.
"With the rules in this era you've got to hit low," Swearinger told ESPN.com's Tania Ganguli after Saturday night's game against the Dolphins. "If I would have hit him high, I would have gotten a fine. So I think I made the smartest play. I'm sorry it happened and I pray he has a speedy recovery. ... Right now it's just instinct. You see somebody come across the middle, you gotta go low. You're going to cost your team 15 yards. You've got to play within the rules."
The rookie safety said he knew he had to change his playing style after being penalized for high hits in college.
"My senior year I had like three helmet-to-helmet [penalties]," Swearinger told ESPN.com. "I knew I had to change my style of play and start targeting low."
