Detroit Lions linebacker Jamie Collins was ejected from Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
The veteran LB was thrown out of the game with 12:24 left in the second quarter for unsportsmanlike conduct. The score was tied 3-3 at the time.
Collins appeared to be complaining about Bears running back David Montgomery lowering his helmet on a run. The linebacker contacted an official in the chest with his helmet on the play leading to the disqualification.
The free-agent addition played 19 of 25 snaps in his first game in Detroit before being ejected, per NextGen Stats.
This is going to fall under "the rule is the rule" a la Novak Djokovic but I wouldn't say this official's life was in danger at any point here. https://t.co/xKEvQX0f3S
