Packers’ Quay Walker ejected after pushing Bills coach to sideline


Green Bay Packers rookie linebacker Quay Walker was ejected from Sunday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills for pushing a coach onto the sidelines in the second quarter after a play.

The game happened with about 4:07 to go in the first half. Bills, running back James Cook, carried the ball to his own sidelines near the first down marker. As both teams prepared to reset for the next game, Walker was seen pushing the street-wear-clad coach onto the Bills sideline.

Walker was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. The Bills were about to play their next game, but the referee team stopped play and ejected Walker from the game.

It appeared that Walker helped force Cook out of bounds, the coach got hold of Walker to pull him away. Walker didn’t seem to like it too much.
