Mike Zimmer defended Andrew Sendejo's hit on Mike Wallace under the belief that he felt the receiver established himself as a runner. Zimmer plans to consult the league for further clarification: "I think the receiver took five steps after he caught the ball and I think he (Sendejo) hit him with a glancing blow," Zimmer said. "I don't know what the officials, I know what they told me but I'm going to turn it in and see what they say, and the league. Just see what they say. He established position as a runner, took two extra steps. Xavier (Rhodes) was trying to pull the ball out, which he ended up doing. The guy went down a little bit but in my opinion, he was a runner." The play happened on the Ravens second drive. Wallace sustained a concussion on the play and was ruled out for the remainder of the game.
