Following yesterday’s 25-16 Titans win over the Redskins, a clip emerged of Redskins CB Josh Norman chucking his helmet at Titans OL Taylor Lewan in what was a heated altercation.
After the game, Lewan was asked about what he said that triggered Norman to react, Lewan claims Norman was trying to hurt Derrick Henry during the game:
“I’m not worried about Josh Norman, man. I’m an offensive lineman; he’s a DB,” Lewan said. “I don’t even know who that is. I was pissed — he was trying to hurt Derrick Henry during that four-minute [drive]. That’s not the way football is supposed to be played, man. It’s not our fault you’re not relevant anymore.
“He tackled him, and it was like a temper tantrum. I was trying to get Derrick up, and he’s throwing a hissy-fit, going low at him and stuff like that.”
“He was trying to hurt Derrick [Henry] … and that’s just — it’s BS.” — Titans OT Taylor Lewan wasn’t happy with Josh Norman after the game. pic.twitter.com/5rXekRTmwZ
