DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Randy Starks says he's hearing plenty of teasing from teammates for his role in a video that has gone viral.
After Starks fell on a Pittsburgh Steelers fumble, the video shows center Cody Wallace trying to make him cough up the ball by poking him repeatedly with his left fist in the backside below the waist, an off-limits area even in the rough-and-tumble NFL.
Starks said he didn't retaliate because when he rose from the pile, he wasn't sure of the perpetrator. Wallace faces a possible fine for the incident in Miami's 34-28 victory Sunday.
