Broncos rookie S Rahim Moore said Sunday that he thought the big hit he delivered to Bills WR Donald Jones in Saturday night's preseason game between the two teams in Denver was a clean play.

Moore, a second-round rookie from UCLA, drilled Jones, who was looking up to try to catch a high pass along the Bills' sideline. Moore's helmet hit Jones under the chin and knocked the receiver out cold.

Moore was penalized 15 yards for the hit and could be fined if the NFL judges it to have been a helmet-to-helmet hit. Fred Jackson and Stevie Johnson of the Bills tried to get at Moore after the hit and were restrained. Moore was removed from the game by the Broncos so that the situation would cool down.

On Sunday, Moore told reporters that he didn't think his hit was illegal.

"I didn't even know I was flagged until I ran to the sideline," he said. "If it was the wrong thing to do, I apologize, but at the end of the day, I mean no harm to nobody."
