Cleveland Browns safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. fined for a push
After retaliating to a push by Kansas City Chiefs' running backs coach Greg Lewis, the safety pushed back.
The NFL handed down a fine to the Cleveland Browns' player after an on field confrontation in last Sunday's game.
How it went down
Cleveland Browns safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. is facing disciplinary action having been fined $12,128 by the NFL after he was seen to have pushed Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Greg Lewis during their game last Sunday. In contrast, however, Lewis has not faced any consequences for pushing Harrison first. The altercation occurred in the first quarter after Harrison tackled running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire along the Kansas City sideline on the Chiefs' opening drive. After rising to his feet Harrison appeared to bump into Chiefs center, Creed Humphrey. At this point the Browns' safety stepped backwards onto Edwards-Helaire. Lewis immediately shoved Harrison away at which point he retaliated by pushing Lewis in the neck.
Initially Officials flagged the Kansas City bench for unsportsmanlike conduct. Then, after regrouping to discussed, they overturned the penalty and proceeded to flag and eject Harrison. When questioned earlier this week, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski was frank. "It's the oldest thing in football and in sport, the game officials always see the second guy." "Ronnie has to show some poise there and not retaliate."
Browns center and NFLPA president JC Tretter said Monday that Lewis should be been disciplined by the NFL for his role in the skirmish. "I expect that the coach gets held to the same standard - if not a higher standard - than Ronnie," Tretter stated. "Being the first one in there and being a coach, putting his hands on an opposing player."
Kansas City went on to win the game, 33-29.
