Ndamukong Suh was once again facing critisim this week with acusations he taunted an injured Colts lineman in last week’s loss.

"Since Sunday there's been tremendous accusations, a lot of things that have been said about me in the particular play that happened between me and Winston Justice,” Suh said before any reporters could ask him a question in his usual Wednesday media availability session.

“I'm the type of player that would never celebrate anybody being hurt. I was celebrating about my team playing well and I had been a guy since the beginning of that game, (that was) just excited. Later you saw me jumping around with Nick (Fairley).

“For me, I feel bad that it was even something I had to deal with on Sunday and really throughout the week, but it is what it is. I've been the easy target of negative things and I understand that in my life. I'm going to move past it. I'm looking forward to Sunday and that's what I'm focusing on.

During safety Don Carey's interception return in the fourth quarter, Suh laid big block on Justice, causing him to suffer a concussion. The Colts claimed Suh stood over Justice and laughed and taunted him, which was not substantiated when watching the play on tape.

"I was celebrating the play,” Suh said. “We got the ball. I'm running off to the sideline, Corey's grabbing me, jumping on me, we're about to hopefully win the game. We're up 12 points, hopefully offense goes and scores an we're up even more.

“I'm facing the total opposite way. I don't know what's going on with the guy.”

Suh said he feels bad about the injury suffered by Justice and wished him luck on his recovery.

"One thing I'd like to say, if he did receive a concussion, I hope he heals up real fast and gets back on the football field,” Suh said.
