Ravens’ Yanda accuses Titans’ Simmons of spitting in face

After Saturday’s 28-12 upset loss to Tennessee in the AFC divisional playoffs, Baltimore Ravens veteran offensive lineman Marshal Yanda accused Titans rookie defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons of spitting in his face.Yanda, a 13-year veteran, said Simmons did so during the second or third quarter.”I just want to put him on notice, in the media — I’ve never done this in my career,” Yanda said. “There’s a right way and a wrong way to play football, and that guy did not do it the right way today. So the refs and everybody in the NFL need to put him on notice. Like I said, I’ve never been spit in my face, and I literally got spit right in my face by No. 98.”Yanda said he told the referees and also said something about it to Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey.”I told Jurrell to get your guy, because that’s ridiculous,” Yanda said. “I definitely respect Jurrell, and I wanted to let him know to get your guy, because that was just, like I said, that’s not acceptable in this game.”Yanda also told the media that Simmons “was saying some stuff today that was just ridiculous conduct for the NFL. So I just want to put him on notice. That was ridiculous conduct that I got.”Simmons, the Titans’ first-round pick out of Mississippi State, was not available to comment after Yanda spoke to the media.
