The NFL is looking into Eagles center Mike McGlynn's accusation that Redskins safety LaRon Landry spit at him.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday the league checks for video evidence any time there is a report of a player spitting on another during a game. Last week, the NFL did not fine Ravens fullback Le'Ron McClain after the Dolphins said he spit in the face of Miami linebacker Channing Crowder.

After Philadelphia's 59-28 victory at Washington on Monday night, McGlynn said Landry spit at him twice during extra points.

Landry denied spitting at McGlynn, saying: "I'm aggressive. I'm not that type of player."
