NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent has revealed that Chris Baker should not have been ejected from the Washington Redskins' game against the Philadelphia Eagles at the weekend.
However, Vincent told the Washington Post: "Baker didn't do anything wrong with that hit. When you look at the rule, he didn't do anything illegal.
"People can say it's a cheap shot and you can talk about whether it might fall under unsportsmanlike conduct. But when you know the rule and you look at the play, he didn't hit him in the head.
"He didn't hit him in the neck. We looked at it. I looked at it very closely. He's not going to be fined for that."
The Eagles went on to win the game 37-34.
