Rams’ Lamarcus Joyner, Chiefs’ Jeremy Maclin ejected from preseason game

Sunday August 21st, 2016

A Saturday night preseason football game in Los Angeles between the Rams and Chiefs featured a double ejection as Jeremy Maclin and Lamarcus Joyner were thrown out of the game for fighting in the final minute of the first half.

The referee announced the two were being removed from the game due to “tussling,” and while announcing the penalties he forgot  the Rams franchise had relocated since last season and misidentified Joyner as a “St. Louis” player, according to The MMQB.com.

Before his ejection Maclin, who is in his second season with Kansas City, had three catches for 48 yards and a touchdown as Kansas City took a 20–14 lead at halftime.
