Browns Safety Ejected After Stomping on Opponent, Shoving Coach

  • Browns safety Ronnie Harrison was ejected 10 minutes into Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.
  • Harrison shoved Chiefs assistant coach Greg Lewis on the sideline after a play.
  • Harrison also shoved his cleat into the chest of running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Cleveland Browns safety Ronnie Harrison only played in 10 minutes of his team’s season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs after getting into an altercation with a coach on the Kansas City sideline.

After chasing down running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire for a tackle, Harrison was pushed by Chiefs assistant coach Greg Lewis to get Harrison off of Edwards-Helaire. Harrison responded with a shove of his own.

Another video angle showed that Harrison had shoved his cleat onto Edwards-Helaire while on the ground, prompting Lewis’ shove.

On the field, referees initially called a 15-yard penalty against the Chiefs bench for unsportsmanlike conduct, leaving the Kansas City sideline fuming.

But before the game moved on, replay officials called down to correct the call, opting instead for off-setting penalties and an ejection for Harrison.

The league could also potentially fine Harrison later in the week in addition to his ejection.
