Seattle Seahawks cornerback Tharold Simon was ejected from the team’s preseason debut against the Denver Broncos on Thursday after striking Broncos tight end Gerell Robinson in the head.
With 10:06 remaining in the third quarter, Broncos running back Kapri Bibbs scored a touchdown to give his team a 14-10 lead.
A brief scuffle ensued between the two teams after the score, and Simon emerged from the tussle exchanging words with the Broncos’ Robinson. Simon hit Robinson in the head, and officials subsequently flagged Simon for a 15-yard personal foul penalty and ejected him from the game.
i got home kinda late lastnight, so totally missed the first preseason games… got home, turned on the tv, and saw the last 5 minutes of the Redskins v. Patriots game, but that’s about it… of course the broncos would play the seahawks in their first preseason game… i mean, of course… must’ve been a little heated and awkward, to say the least.
i’m still a little butthurt over the super bowl, to the point where a part of me doesn’t really want to see my broncos get to the playoffs again this year — never thought i’d say that, but it’s true.
