DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Jordan Phillips has called New England Patriots center David Andrews a “dirty player” in an Instagram post.

Phillips’ comment Tuesday was accompanied by a video of the play on which he injured his left leg in Monday night’s Miami victory.

Andrews went at Phillips’ legs trying to block him on a screen pass. Phillips limped off the field, but later returned to the game.

“#dirtyplayer #cantblock,” Phillips wrote.

Miami coach Adam Gase declined to say whether he had an issue with the block.
