New York Jets guard Matt Slauson caught some flak for his block on Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, who suffered a season-ending ACL tear in Monday night's game.
Coach Rex Ryan defended his player.
"What I saw on that tape, I don't remember that specific play, but I would never question our guys as far as trying to injure someone or try and do something not in the confinement of the rules," Ryan said to the Newark Star-Ledger.
Ryan added: "I would have to say I would definitely question (the flack Slauson is getting), I never saw anything specifically I was just watching our game tape. I'll say this -- we got rolled up a few times in our game, and sometimes in this game you gotta be fortunate to avoid some injury. I don't know what happened in Brian's case. Obviously he's a tremendous football player and I hate to see any player suffer a serious injury."
