Minnesota Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson is the second NFL player this season to allege misconduct from an official during a game.
Via the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Simpson said an official made some inappropriate comments to him and his teammates during Minnesota's 48-30 win over the Eagles on Sunday.
“There were some questionable things, what the ref also said to a couple of our players,” Simpson said. “I won’t go into that. It was kind of some stuff, controversial things that he said to a couple of our players."
Simpson's claim follows one made by Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams, who alleged umpire Roy Ellison called him some names during an earlier game this season.
Simpson wouldn't say what the official said to the Vikings players, adding he'll "let him live." Simpson doesn't plan to file a complaint to the league office.
