Kayvon Thibodeaux draws criticism for snow angel celebration after Nick Foles injury: ‘Just horses—’

One of the most important rules in the NFL is that you never celebrate injury.

When Giants defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux sacked Nick Foles toward the end of the first half, Foles stayed down, very clearly in evident pain.

Thibodeaux, apparently not realizing the severity of the injury, immediately began doing snow angels on the grass next to Foles, who was convulsing in pain.

While that can be chalked up to not being aware of what was happening — Thibodeaux may well have not been able to see Foles in his peripheral vision — Thibodeaux also did Steph Curry’s “go to sleep” celebration on the sidelines, well after Foles was being tended to.

Following the game, Colts center Ryan Kelly had strong words for Thibodeaux.

“Hopefully his teammates will — maybe one day he’ll learn that injuries happen in this league, you never want to to happen to the guy that you’re going against. That’s just horseshit,” Kelly said, via the team’s website.

The Giants ended up winning 38-10 in dominant fashion, and Sam Ehlinger ended up finishing out the game for the Colts.
