Due to a brawl Harrison was fined just over $ 12,000; the other participant was not punished
Cleveland Browns safety Ronnie Harrison Jr., was fined $ 12,128 by the NFL for pushing Kansas City assistant running backs coach Greg Lewis during the game last Sunday.
Lewis, however, was not fined for pushing Harrison first.
The incident occurred in the first quarter after Harrison tackled running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire along the Kansas City sideline on the Chiefs’ first drive. When Harrison got up, he ran into Chiefs center Creed Humphrey and then came back on Edwards-Helaire. After Lewis shoved Harrison, the player retaliated by shoving him back by the neck.
Officers initially targeted the Kansas City bench for unsportsmanlike conduct. But after meeting again they reversed the sentence, singling out and expelling Harrison.
“It’s the oldest thing in football and in sports – game officials always see the second player,” Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said earlier this week. “Ronnie has to show some poise and not retaliate.”
Browns center and NFLPA president JC Tretter said Monday that Lewis should be disciplined by the NFL for his role in the brawl.
“I hope the coach is singled out on the same level, if not higher, than Ronnie,” Tretter said. “He was the first to get his hands on an opposing player.”
