Fact: Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf was ejected on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. This happened in a crazy situation where the refs told him to get off the field then Metcalf came back into the game.
DK Metcalf was frustrated throughout the game against the Packers. The team scored zero points and Metcalf had just 26 yards on 3 receptions.
Metcalf seemed a bit confused that he had been ejected for grabbing the face mask of a Packer and rightfully so. Watching on TV, no ejection was mentioned.
What led to Seahawks receiver Dk Metcalf’s week 10 ejection
In week 10, the Seattle Seahawks played the Green Bay Packers on the road and lost. The Seahawks struggled to get points on the board even with Russell Wilson back from injury. The offense wasn’t clicking the whole game.
Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf also didn’t have a great game against the Packers. Metcalf finished with only three catches for 26 yards in the loss. DK Metcalf had an altercation with two Packers players, Henry Black and Eric Stokes. Metcalf ended up getting ejected after that but Metcalf was not ready to leave the field just yet. Metcalf appeared frustrated not only because Seattle was losing but maybe also because the Seahawks are having a losing season. Everything just came to a boil.
When Metcalf tried to re-enter the game just two plays after being ejected, he clearly did not have any idea he wasn’t allowed to come back in but an official went over to Metcalf and told him to leave the game. DK Metcalf was confused on the matter because he wears a visor when he plays and thought the official wouldn’t recognize him.
Metcalf said after the game, “We didn’t get into the end zone. That’s usually what happens when you don’t score. I know I had a couple of key drops that I should have caught. We got to make the plays when our number is called.”
DK Metcalf grabbed Black’s face mask in the fourth quarter. Other Packers players ended up stepping in between to get Metcalf back to his huddle but then the wide receiver grabbed cornerback Eric Stokes face mask.
I don’t think DK Metcalf should have gotten kicked out of the game. Also, fights/altercations happen in football games a lot, even worse than this situation, and this doesn’t even count as a fight or an altercation. The refs should have just left him in and let him play. But the whole game on Sunday seemed pro-Packers and anti-Seahawks so Dunlap was forced to go.
According to Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network, DK Metcalf will most likely get a fine but no suspension.
