ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) — The NFL is still investigating DeAngelo Hall’s ejection during the Washington Redskins loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 28.
Several Redskins’ players are being questioned about the specifics behind the fourth quarter altercation, which resulted in the veteran cornerback taking his helmet off to berate head linesman Dana McKenzie.
Hall claims McKenzie was more than just the victim of a profanity-laced tirade. The league may be attempting to determine whether that is actually the case.
“You can’t see what that ref’s saying to me,” Hall told Lavar Arrington and Chad Dukes during his weekly segment on 106.7 The Fan a couple of days after the game. “It looks like I’m just out there giving him a piece of my mind and he’s smiling and walks away. And that’s not the case at all. He’s dishing it out just as much as I’m dishing it out.”
Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and cornerback Josh Wilson, who each helped to restrain an apoplectic Hall from McKenzie in the closing minutes of Washington’s Week 8 loss, are among the players who the league will or have already spoken with regarding the incident.
When asked about the ongoing investigation, the league emailed a response declaring that the NFL was not going to confirm details of an ongoing review.
“With an incident of this nature you have review the matter in its entirety to determine the facts,” the league statement read.
