Smith missed two practices this week with a sore right ankle. He says he was only retaliating when Incognito tried to twist his ankle after the whistle.

“If you’re going strictly by the rule book, me kicking him was breaking the rules,” Smith said Friday. “But I want them (the NFL) to look at why I was kicking him, trying to get him off of my ankle. You see on the film, the moment my ankle came free, I stopped. I was just trying to get my ankle free from him mauling it.”

After Sunday’s game, Incognito said he was innocent of wrongdoing.

Incognito, who has carried what he says is an outdated reputation as a dirty player, said the complaint about twisting Smith’s ankle stemmed from a play where the Dolphins fumbled.
