Falcons receiver Roddy — or, as Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh called him Monday, “Rodney” — White has responded to Suh’s non-response to White’s claim that Suh was calling for a cart after Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan went down on Sunday with a leg injury.
“I mean I don’t really have much to say about what [Ndamukong Suh] said,” White told NFL Network. “I just know he’s going to say whatever he wants to say, but we know what they said. 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. . . .
“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 gets hurt on the last play of the game and they have an MRI today.”
White is referring to Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who suffered an injury late in the game, which the Falcons won.
And so in two straight weeks, the Lions have been involved in an issue that has carried into Monday, and that is unrelated to the game itself. Why do we have a feeling that may be the case on a few more Mondays this season?
