Falcons quarterbak Matt Ryan tripped over tackle Will Svitek in the third quarter of the team's win over the Lions today. Ryan fell awkwardly and immediately grabbed his left knee. Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports when Ryan was down in pain, Lions defensive linemen Ndamukong Suh and Cliff Avril taunted him, according to the Falcons. I had respect for Suh before the game, McClure said. But when Matt was on the ground, the things he was saying and the trash he was talking was definitely uncalled for. There are certain things you dont do. [He said], Get the cart and several other things that I cant repeat. Roddy White said, 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 [Ryans] feet, saying, Get him off the field. We dont do stuff like that. We dont 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.
