Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White — that’s “Rodney White” to Ndamukong Suh — isn’t buying Suh’s denial that he and Detroit Lions teammate Cliff Avril talked trash to injured Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, as White and Falcons center Todd McClure claimed, on Sunday.
“I just know he's going to say whatever he wants to say, but we know what they said,’’ White said in an NFL Network interview. “We were standing right there in the huddle, we saw when he went down and that's before the medical staff got there that they said was in front of the play. We didn't say he kicked Matt; we said one of the guys, I don't know if it was 92 [Suh] or 93 [Avril], one of the defensive ends, came over and he was making kicking gestures like, ‘Get him out of here, get him out of here.’
“I know Suh said what he said. He said, ‘Go get the cart for him. Get him out of here.’ He knows he said that and we're not going to go back and forth about what he said-she said. And then he's going to say it was karma for what we've done in the past when their quarterback [Matthew Stafford] gets hurt on the last play of the game and they have an MRI [Monday].”
Back to you, Ndamukong.
