Raiders reportedly file complaint with NFL over alleged 'dirty hits' on WR Hunter Renfrow in win over Ravens

The Las Vegas Raiders filed an official complaint with the league over “all the dirty hits” wide receiver Hunter Renfrow absorbed during their wild Monday night win over the Baltimore Ravens, according to The Athletic’s Vic Tafur.

The Raiders — who beat the Ravens 33-27 in overtime at Allegiant Stadium on Monday — reportedly sent the league a video compilation of multiple plays in which Renfrow was hit either after the play or well away from the ball.

The #Raiders, I'm told, have filed a complaint with the league about all the dirty hits on receiver Hunter Renfrow in Monday night's game. Patrick Queen was called for one, but the Raiders compiled video of several after-the-play and away-from-the ball hits.

One play that surfaced on Twitter showed an example of what the Raiders are complaining about. In the clip, Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey drilled Renfrow and sent him to the ground far from the action while quarterback Derek Carr was still in the pocket. No penalty was called.

Yeah, that hit from Humphrey is a big reason Raiders are so upset.

Humphrey said Wednesday that he apologized to Renfrow.

“I did hit Hunter Renfrow a little after the play,” Humphrey said, via ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. “I thought Derek Carr was out of the pocket. I apologized to him on the field. That was a play I wish I could take back.”

Renfrow finished with six catches for 70 yards in Monday’s win. The 25-year-old finished with a career-high 656 yards and two touchdowns last season, his second in the league, on 56 receptions.

“It will be interesting to see what comes of [the complaint],” Carr said, via Tafur. “It doesn’t bother [Renfrow] at all, he just doesn’t care.”

Renfrow wasn’t complaining about the hits Wednesday, either.

“I didn’t notice anything different from any other game,” he said, via Tafur.
