NFL: Browns WR Greg Little Claims Ravens S James Ihedigbo Choked Him

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little claims Baltimore Ravens safety James Ihedigbo choked him during the Browns' 24-18 win on Sunday.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little claims Baltimore Ravens safety James Ihedigbo choked him during the Browns' 24-18 win on Sunday. 

It all started with 1:16 remaining in the first quarter when Little blocked Ihedigbo, per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. The latter then placed his right hand on the back of the former's helmet and pushed it down.

Little shoved back, with Ihedigbo and his teammate, outside linebacker Pernell McPhee, both pushing the Cleveland wide receiver. Little fell onto his backside and that's when the alleged choking incident took place. 

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, "Little said he ripped off Ravens safety James Ihedigbo's helmet during Sunday's 24-18 victory over the Ravens and threw it because Ihedigbo was choking him on the bottom of the pile." Little was given a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. 

Nonetheless, he was adamant about Ihedigbo's actions.

"I know the ref was saying 'let go of his face mask,' but he was choking me, so I'm not (going to let go).There's a thin line between football and just morals and if you're a man, you're not going to let a guy spit in your face, and you're not going to let a guy choke you.

"You're not going to let a guy have (his) way with your kids or your family or your wife. It's just how it is.

"I don't have anything to say to the ref. At that point, (Ihedigbo) crossed the line." 

Little also referred to a screen shot of the incident that went viral online. "The picture is reality," the Browns wide receiver quipped.

He also said,"You can't argue with a stop sign, and you can't portray in a picture something that it's not." 

For his part, Ihedigbo vehemently denied Little's accusation, saying he just put his hand on his chest, per ESPN's Pat McManamon.

"I would never personally cross the lines or play outside the rules in any manner. You can freeze the clip so some surface looks like whatever. I have my hand on his chest. It is what it is. He ripped off my helmet and threw it. 

"I guess he's looking back on him losing his cool and saying what took place that didn't take place. The refs would've seen it. Other players would've seen it. I would've been punished for the play as well." 

Little said he hasn't been informed of any fine from the NFL, but insisted that if he does get fined, Ihedigbo should, too. 

The two traded barbs at the end of the game with Ihedigbo saying Little is "just trying to be a tough guy." Little countered by saying the Ravens safety is "far from tough" and that they can settle the matter on the field when their teams square off again.
