ALLEN PARK, Mich. —
Young has 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns this season, and he seemed to have turned a corner in late October when he caught the winning TD in the final minute against Seattle.
“I think they made the decision they had to make, and I’m sure it was a hard decision,” said offensive lineman Rob Sims, who was emotional talking about Young. “I think it’s hard all the way around. The guy was trying. He was really trying.”
Suh, meanwhile, has been no stranger to controversy, and he’s involved in another now. Colts offensive lineman Mike McGlynn accused Suh and other Lions of celebrating too much while Indianapolis lineman Winston Justice was on the ground injured after a Detroit interception in the fourth quarter.
“Totally ignorant on their part,” McGlynn told the Indianapolis Star. “Just childish stuff. We’re all battling out there; I don’t know if the hit was legal or not, but clearly he was hurt, and they’re out there dancing and pointing at him and laughing. Just blatant disrespect. They’re good players but there’s no room for that. It’s disgusting, really.”
Suh wasn’t in the Detroit locker room when it was open to media Monday, but Schwartz responded to the accusation.
“What shows on the coaches’ film is we make an interception with six minutes to go and we’re up two scores and looks like it’s a really great chance to be able to win that game. Guys were looking to make blocks, guys made blocks,” Schwartz said. “It’s off after that. There were no penalties on that play. Our guys were rightfully excited. We had a very good pass rush on that. The quarterback, like we had talked about all week, had to elevate his throw.
