Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill criticized Jets safety Calvin Pryor for celebrating after a hit that injured Miami receiver Rishard Matthews.

Matthews injured his chest and ribs on a hit by Pryor in the first quarter and did not return to the game.  

“I was worried about Rishard, but I heard some [teammates] talking about it on the sidelines,” Tannehill said, according to ESPN.com. “That’s kind of a classless move to celebrate when a guy is injured. Obviously, it was a good hit, a clean hit. But to celebrate when a guy is down is a classless move.”

Pryor said on Twitter after the game that he wasn’t celebrating the fact that Matthews was injured.

Before hearing Tannehill’s criticism, Jets head coach Todd Bowles lauded Pryor for the play.

“I thought Calvin made a good play,” Bowles said, according to NJ.com.
