CLEVELAND- The Associated Press is reporting that the National Football League Players Association president and Browns center JC Tretter is calling for a suspension of Chiefs assistant coach Greg Lewis.
This comes after an incident in the first quarter of Sunday's game where Browns DB Ronnie Harrison and Lewis got into an altercation on the sidelines. Harrison was ejected from the game after that.
In a Zoom call, Tretter stated “I expect that the coach gets held to the same standard – if not a higher standard – than Ronnie. I don’t think there’s any room for that in this league."
An NFL spokesperson said the current incident is under review and that Harrison will not be suspended, but it's likely he will be fined.
While Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was not directly asked about Lewis and future discipline, he backed his assistant.
“You don’t do that on our sideline, you don’t do that to our guys, bottom line,” stated Reid.
The Chiefs are set to face off again on Sunday, Sept. 19 against the Ravens.
