The Baltimore Ravens have denied allegations that offensive lineman Marshal Yanda spat on Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in Sunday's 24-21 win.

Ravens spokesman Kevin Byrne told ESPN's Jamison Hensley that Yanda "did not spit on anyone." 

Video appeared to show Yanda spitting in the direction of Burfict in the fourth quarter. It's unclear if the spit hit Burfict, who did not have any reaction.

It's possible the NFL could fine Yanda if it finds he spit at Burfict. 

Given the lack of reaction from Burfict and the Ravens' denial, though, it may be hard to prove intent in this case.
