LA Rams linebacker Kenny Young was ejected during the second half against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday after a brief altercation with a player led to an emotionally-charged reaction to the referee who stepped in to break up the fight. Young was immediately flagged, then ejected after he yelled at and made inadvertent contact with the official who stepped into the pile.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported on Monday morning that the Rams linebacker will not face suspension from the league for his actions on Sunday in Week 2 against the Colts, but he is still potentially subject to fines. That part will be reviewed by the league this week.
No suspensions are expected for #Rams LB Kenny Young or #Steelers OL Trai Turner, who were both ejected from games Sunday, I'm told. Both will be reviewed for possible fines.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 20, 2021
The Rams allowed a touchdown on that drive — the only touchdown allowed by the defense all day — and Young ended up missing out on the fourth quarter. Rookie third round pick Ernest Jones played in nine snaps on defense.
Colts Eric Fisher plays Knight in shining armor to official, Brian Neal, when Rams Kenny Young made contact with his hat. Oh no, Fisher was just trolling to make sure Young was penalized. pic.twitter.com/7kSVh0ndnU— Los Real Polyamorous Tantric Sex Guru (@LosRealAli) September 19, 2021
