SportsDash: Can’t tackle high, can’t tackle low

NFL defenders know by now that the head is off limits, but that still leaves the rest of the body, right? Kind of.

With the skyrocketing number of season-ending knee injuries, the NFL says it is keeping an eye on low hits now, too. Steelers safety Ryan Clark has already voiced his displeasure, saying that the task of bringing down a 240-pound ballcarrier is nearly impossible when given a two-foot window to attack. NBCSN's Shaun King feels the same way.

King joins Dave Briggs on SportsDash to discuss the increasingly restricted discipline of tackling in the NFL.
