A.J. Green throws punches at Jalen Ramsey; both ejected from Bengals vs Jaguars game

A.J. Green is clearly frustrated and those frustrations boiled over in the Bengals vs Jaguars game as both he and Jalen Ramsey were ejected from the game right before halftime.

The wheels are coming off for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Right at the end of the first half of their matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars, star wide receiver A.J. Green got into a fight with Jalen Ramsey, which led to both players being ejected.

Here is a replay of the play in action and the ensuing fight:

Here’s another look:

This is a terrible look for Green, who’s been known as one of the true good guys of the NFL, not to mention a leader for a Bengals team that’s been on the fringe of a full meltdown at several points this season.

It’s possible the NFL ends up suspending both players for another game, as the league strongly discourages fighting. The Bengals play the Titans in Tennessee next week.

Green has never engaged in anything close to this type of behavior, so this comes as a major shock, not to mention a painful display of the frustrations this team is going through.

Perhaps the league will use Green’s clean history as reason not to suspend the star NFL receiver, especially since he’s going to miss the second half of a one-score game in Jacksonville.

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown commented quickly on Twitter about the fight, saying A.J. has a great attitude, that it’s not like him and that something must be going on. We’d have to agree. This is truly SO unlike Green.
