Green Bay Packers rookie linebacker Quay Walker was ejected from Sunday night’s game against the Detroit Lions after a bizarre fourth-quarter skirmish.

The incident occurred with around 7:24 remaining in the game. Lions running back D’Andre Swift was looking for more yards as they trailed by three points. Swift went down after being tackled and took a forearm to the head from Packers defensive tackle Jarran Reed.

The penalty flags went up after the play ended and it looked like the officials were going to call Reed for unnecessary roughness for the hit, but instead the penalty fell on Walker.

Walker was seen shoving a Lions coach who had come out to attend to Swift. The coach tried to get to Swift, who was on the ground. Replay of the incident showed Walker shoving the coach.
