Indianapolis Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday wasn't a fan of Kayvon Thibodeaux's celebration in Week 17, and he wasn't afraid of making his thoughts public. Now, the rookie edge rusher has reacted, quite strongly, to this harsh criticism.

Thibodeaux was asked about Saturday's recent comments, and trolled for former offensive lineman in order to get his point across.

"I don't know who he is. So I'm not really too concerned about people who comment on me and I don't know them," said Thibodeaux. This is an obvious slight at the head coach, who not only operates as Indy's interim leader, but spent 14 very successful years in the NFL.

Saturday was upset with Thibodeaux's celebration after he forced a hit on quarterback Nick Foles, a hit that caused the veteran gunslinger to get injured on the play. Saturday used words like "tasteless" and "trash" to describe this celebration.

It's likely Thibodeaux wasn't fully aware he had injured Foles on this play, especially watching the play in real time. This didn't stop words from being exchanged and adds a potential wrinkle to any future Giants-Colts games should Saturday stay in his coaching position moving forward.
