Jets safety Calvin Pryor called out Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill on Twitter after Tannehill called him "classless."
Tannehill had words for Pryor after Pryor laid a hard hit on Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews, knocking him out the game with rib and chest injuries. Pryor celebrated the hard hit after the play while Matthews was tended to by trainers.
"That's kind of a classless move to celebrate when a guy is injured," Tannehill said (Nov. 29). "Obviously, it was a good hit, a clean hit. But to celebrate when a guy is down is a classless move."
Pryor then sent out the following tweets:
Throw a better ball next time @ryantannehill1 teammate would've never got injured!!! Sorry if you felt I was classless at the moment.- Calvin Pryor III (@star_island25) November 30, 2015
I was definitely celebrating the great play I made. I would never celebrate someone getting injured during the game. C'mon now- Calvin Pryor III (@star_island25) November 30, 2015
Linebacker Demario Davis said the Jets were celebrating the play rather than taunting Matthews.
"I don't think it was a taunting type of move," he said. "That's not who we are. We're not going to taunt a person who's down. I think we were more excited about CP and the hit he had, so you had celebrating. You're not noticing a guy is down. You're more celebrating with your teammate. I know me and a couple of guys, when we saw he was down, we took a knee and prayed for him. So it wasn't taunting."
