NFL will look into altercation in Falcons-Redskins game

ASHBURN, Va. -- The NFL is looking into Sunday's altercation between Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall and members of the Falcons near the Atlanta bench.

League spokesman Randall Liu said the incident will be reviewed for possible discipline.

Hall ended up surrounded by Falcons players and coaches after teammate LaRon Landry was whistled for a late sideline hit on quarterback Matt Ryan during Sunday's game at the Georgia Dome. Hall claimed Atlanta coach Mike Smith tried to put his hands on him "in a harmful way."

Redskins coach Jim Zorn said a review of the video seemed to verify Hall's side of the story.

Hall said he will complain to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
