Following this unnecessary tackle, a brawl erupted from the players on the field.
Here's what set Steve Smith off. http://t.co/W0QwCgsUiQ— Sarah Ellison (@sgellison) August 30, 2015
After the catch, wide receiver Kamar Aiken was lifted into the air and driven down on his head by Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson, starting a pile up for the ball that subsequently fell from Aiken's hands.
Protecting his fellow players and always looking for a fight, wide receiver Steve Smith engaged with Redskins cornerback Chris Culliver. Fists started flying and you have yourself an ejection. The ejection happened with less than a minute left in the first quarter. Smith had already caught four passes for 95-yards and a 63-yard touchdown.
Following the ejection, Smith left the field to a loud cheer.
