Peppers Says He’s Not Proud of Hit on Stafford Last Year

Bears defensive end Julius Peppers hit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford near the end of the first half of the season opener last September, injuring his right shoulder and sidelining him for six weeks.

Peppers was genuinely contrite since the day of the hit. He even went and checked on Stafford’s condition immediately after the game.

“To be honest with you, it really doesn’t get me excited to see anybody get injured,” Peppers told Justin Rogers of “It’s not something I take a lot of pride in, the fact that I hit him and injured his shoulder last year.”
