ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Ndamukong Suh is firing back at the Falcons, saying quarterback Matt Ryan's brief injury Sunday was "karma" and hinting that Atlanta has been guilty of dirty play.

Ryan was hurt in the third quarter of a 23-16 win over Suh's Detroit Lions.

Atlanta players told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Suh and fellow defensive lineman Cliff Avril taunted the quarterback while he was down.

Ryan tweaked a knee when offensive lineman Will Svitek stepped on his left ankle, but he came back in the game a short while later.

Suh said: "To me it's karma for all the bad stuff they've done in the past. Their offensive lineman hurt their own quarterback."
