Redskins safety LaRon Landry is dismissing the accusation that he spat in the face of Eagles center Mike McGlynn during Monday night’s game, claiming he and McGlynn were never near each other.
“This is my answer: When would I ever be in touch with the center? I never blitz the ‘A’ gap.” Landry told the Washington Post.
But footage from the game shows Landry within spitting distance of McGlynn during extra points. Told of that, Landry still claimed he was never near McGlynn on the field.
“Extra points? Still, when would I ever be in the ‘A’ gap? Extra points I’m on the end. With that said, that’s your answer,” Landry said.
An NFL spokesman told the Philadelphia Daily News that the league is investigating the matter. That makes it the second straight week that the NFL has investigated a spitting accusation; last week the league looked into an allegation that Ravens fullback Le’Ron McClain spat on Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder, but the league said there wasn’t enough evidence to justify league discipline.
