Tennessee Titans center Rob Turner fired back at Houston Texans defensive tackle J.J. Watt and maintained he lied about the peel-back block incident on Sunday.

Tennessee Titans center Rob Tuner has fired back at Houston Texans defensive tackle J.J. Watt

Turner was fined by the NFL for his peel-back block on Watt, a maneuver which was previously legal but is now banned by the league, per Jim Wyatt and John Glennon of The Tennessean

He expressed his thoughts on the play and the fine -- which he didn't disclose in terms of an exact amount, only saying "it wasn't exorbitant." 

"I've been taught to cut on screen (plays) ever since I was a kid. It was a rule change this year and it was something I didn't think about, I just reacted. 

"I am a hard-nosed guy and that gets misconstrued sometimes. I know J.J. was saying all sorts of stuff to the media down there about him (telling me he has) a family to feed and stuff like that, but all that wasn't true and he's full of it for saying it. That was a lie about him talking to me." 

Watt told Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle on Sunday that Turner's block was "absolutely" dirty and that he gave Turner a piece of his mind afterward.

"I'm not trying to get my knee blown out. That's why there's a rule in place. And it was clearly blatant. I mean, you peel back around, and you're going towards your own goal line, you know exactly what you're doing -- you're going low on somebody's knee. 

"You respect that this is people's job. This is your life. And to go at somebody's knee like that...that's just something that you don't do.

"I said,'You were clearly trying to take out my knee.' And he tried to apologize. But you're trying to take out my knee -- that's exactly what you're trying to do." 

Watt also insists the incident is very similar to what happened to his Texans teammate, inside linebacker Brian Cushing, who tore his ACL in Week 5 of the 2012 season. 

The same game also drew some contorversy involving Titans safety Bernard Pollard, who was subsequently fined $42,000 by the NFL for his hit on Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson at the Titans 2-yard line. 

Johnson suffered a concussion on the play. 

Pollard wasn't called for a penalty but his fine, which he said he's going to appeal, infuriated him. He even said the NFL wants its players to play "flag football." 

The Texans defeated the Titans 30-24 to remain undefeated through Week 3 of the 2013 NFL season.

Broncos, Texans wrap up scrappy week of workouts

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The last time Broncos star left tackle Ryan Clady was involved in joint preseason practices, he got into a fight with current teammate DeMarcus Ware, then of the Dallas Cowboys. What made those fisticuffs back in 2008 so unusual was that it pitted two of the nicest guys in the NFL.
