Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green was ejected from Sunday’s game in Jacksonville after putting Jaguars defensive back Jalen Ramsey in a choke-hold before slamming him on the ground (twice) and throwing multiple punches. Ramsey – who was also ejected – initially pushed Green to the ground, which lead to his reaction.
As to be expected, twitter exploded after the altercation. Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter tweeted “Of all the WR’s in [the] NFL, A.J. Green would be one of the last I’d pick to go off on a db.” Green who known for being a quiet receiver, which is why what happened today was so bizarre.
This is the 2nd time that Jalen Ramsey has been ejected for fighting – in only his second season as a pro. He had been shadowing Green throughout the first half and had shut him down to only one reception for a measly 6 yards.
Both players were ejected with less than a minute to in the first half with Jacksonville leading 13-7.
