Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Randy Starks says he's hearing plenty of teasing from teammates for his role in a video that has gone viral.

After Starks fell on a Pittsburgh Steelers fumble, the video shows center Cody Wallace trying to make him cough up the ball by poking him repeatedly with his left fist in the backside below the waist, an off-limits area even in the rough-and-tumble NFL.

Starks said he didn't retaliate because when he rose from the pile, he wasn't sure of the perpetrator.

''I saw two people, and didn't know which one it was,'' Starks said Tuesday. ''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.''

While Wallace faces a possible fine, Starks' teammates were amused by the incident in Miami's 34-28 victory Sunday.

''They are getting on me - `Check the prostate' and stuff like that,'' Starks said. ''I'm hearing it.''
