Ndamukong Suh Accused Of Taunting Injured Matt Ryan

The Atlanta Falcons held on for a 23-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon, but the story wasn't the win. Instead, the focus after the game was what happened after Matt Ryan went down with an apparent ankle injury during the second half. Ryan was fine and returned to finish the game, but a few Atlanta players were unhappy with the events that transpired as their quarterback was on the ground.

Here's Roddy White's version of the events:

“I lost a whole lot of respect for 90 [Suh] today, and also 92 [Cliff Avril], the [bleep] they were doing when Matt got hurt. That was unacceptable. … Like 92 was kicking [Ryan’s] feet, saying, ‘Get him off the field.’ We don’t do stuff like that. We don’t rally over guys when they get hurt. It was just inappropriate behavior. I mean, ‘Get the cart’? Are you serious? Come on. When you compete, you never want to see a guy get hurt.”

And yet, there's no way to know what actually happened on the field. We all know there's plenty of trash-talking in football -- and all sports -- but when a player goes down, typically a truce is momentarily called.

But it's a he said, he said thing in this case. White wouldn't seem to have any motivation to lie about what he saw and heard after Ryan's injury, but it's only one side of the story. This side of the story, however, reflects poorly on Suh, if true.
