BOSTON (AP) — New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is expressing support for the Boston police officers critically injured while responding to an argument between roommates.

Belichick opened Friday’s news conference saying he and the organization wanted to “express our appreciation and support for the Boston Police Department.”

He talked about the challenges police officers face, and said: “I just want to let them know we’re behind them, we appreciate them, we appreciate what they do for us and how they protect us and we’re there for them.”

He went on to praise the Cincinnati Bengals, this weekend’s opponent.

Officers Richard Cintolo and Matt Morris were shot Wednesday night by a man who was later shot and killed. They remain hospitalized.

Boston police later tweeted out their appreciation of Belichick’s comments.
