Was the Ellis’ injury a payback from the Texans?

There has been much ado about the block by Jets guard Matt Slauson that hurt the knee of Texans linebacker Brian Cushing in the second quarter.

But the Texans might have been guilty of the same thing.

In the fourth quarter, Texans guard Wade Smith blocked Kenrick Ellis in the lower left leg, injuring the nose tackle’s knee.

Was Smith’s low block payback for what Slauson did? Maybe.

You could make a strong argument that both blocks were below the belt, so to speak.
