Packers’ Quay Walker ejected after shoving Bills coach on sideline

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

The play occurred with about 4:07 left to go in the first half. Bills running back James Cook carried the ball toward his own sidelines near the first-down marker. As both teams were getting ready to reset for the next play, Walker was seen pushing the coach dressed in street clothes on the Bills’ sideline.

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

It appeared as Walker helped force Cook out of bounds, the coach puts his hands on Walker to move him out of the way. Walker didn’t appear to like that too much.
