CeeDee Lamb, a Dallas Cowboys wide receiver believes that Harrison Smith, the Minnesota Vikings safety, intentionally choked him during Sunday’s game.
Smith took Lamb down from the sideline, and he appeared to be wrapping his arms around the neck of the wide receiver.
Lamb said, “Man was choking (bleep), life out of me on sideline,” Lamb was heard saying.
The NFL reviewed the incident and determined that the “choking”, as it was called, was accidental. Smith will not be penalized.
“Multiple league officials reviewed this play and it seemed Smith’s thumb accidentally caught in Lamb’s chinstrap,” NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero reports.

Cowboys fans won’t believe it, however. Given what Smith did, they aren’t happy about Smith not getting a fine.
The Cowboys won Sunday night. That is all that matters. They did it without Dak Prescott at the center.
With Sunday’s win over Minnesota, Dallas moved up to 6-1 for the season.
Prescott will be back in the Cowboys’ hands on Sunday as they take on the Broncos at their home.
