Anthony Hitchens only one not talking about his play

The man with the best view of last night’s controversial no-call might be the only person in America not talking about it.

When Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens was approached by reporters last night to explain his role in the pass interference that wasn’t, he declined comment.

No media for me today, guys,” he said, via Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.

Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple tells PFT that it wasn’t Hitchens’ call to duck reporters.

“He was summoned to the training room by our medical staff for treatment, which was a priority at the time,” Dalrymple said.

Hitchens was questionable for the game with an ankle injury, but was able to push through and play.

Cowboys players are off today, so there won’t be a chance to follow up with him until later in the week. By which time, the topic may have exhausted itself, and he may take the “On to Green Bay” approach.
