Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Randy Starks has told Pittsburgh Steelers centre Cody Wallace that he was lucky he didn't know it was him that gave him an ass-grab in the Dolphins victory last weekend.

Starks recovered a fumble by Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the first quarter and ended up at the bottom of a pile of bodies, among  them was Wallace.

Watching video footage from the NFL network, you can clearly see the Steelers man grab Starks in the backside/crotch area quite forcefully - the 'Fins star was understandably not best pleased, but said it was probably for the best that he didn't know who had grabbed him.

"I've heard of stuff like that happening. This is the first time it has happened to me," Starks ir quoted as saying by

"I saw two people, and didn't know which one it was," Starks is quoted as saying by

"It's tough not to react. If I had done something I would have gotten thrown."I'm glad I didn't know who it was, because it would have gotten ugly out there."

Video of the incident as gone viral and, as is customary among professional sports teams, Starks' Miami Dolphins teammates have been reminding him of it in the locker room.

"They are getting on me -- 'Check the prostate' and stuff like that. I'm hearing it," he added.

Thankfully for Starks, his painful and embarrassing episode did not occur in vain as the Dolphins went on to defeat the Steelers 34-28 in a snow dusted encounter at Heinz Field.
