Almost two weeks later, we’re still talking about what sparked the sideline incident between Cleveland Browns safety Ronnie Harrison and Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Greg Lewis.
Since then, Harrison has not spoken publicly about the incident that prompted his ejection from the game.
He was also fined $ 12,128.
Last week it was reported that Harrison was planning to appeal the fine.

Lewis, on the other hand, was not sent off from the game and initially did not receive a fine.
It was later reported that the NFL fined Lewis for his involvement.
The amount of the fine was not disclosed.
On Monday, the NFLPA was informed that Greg Lewis, the Chiefs coach who pushed Browns safety Ronnie Harrison was fined an undisclosed amount … 3 days after Harrison was told of his fine …#ClevelandVsWorld #Brown #DawgCheck #DawgPound https://t.co/QEamkzZQpb

Lewis finally addressed the matter on Thursday.
“I lost my temper. As a parent, I need to be a better example and defuse the situation. It’s something I shouldn’t be a part of. I spoke with Coach Reid and the NFL. From this point of view, it will not happen again.

#Brown Ronnie Harrison can’t do that. You can not. The ejection and the fine are automatic. Even if a coach pushes you because they think you are stepping on their player on purpose (and I don’t think it was on purpose by Harrison), you can’t push a coach in the face with a show of hands. pic.twitter.com/jeWzEu1kUo

This happened early in the game on the sidelines of Kansas City as the game ended out of bounds.
Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was lying on the ground.
The television cameras picked up and replayed the Harrison part of the exchange.
He pushed Lewis hard enough to knock his glasses off.
A closer look at the footage showed Lewis initially pushed Harrison.
Lewis pushed, and Harrison responded; both were wrong to do what they did.
Coach Stefanski opened up about the incident after the game.
“I spoke to Ronnie. It’s the oldest thing in football, in sports – match officials always see the second guy, and Ronnie needs to be cool and not hit back. “
It was definitely a heat exchange of the moment.
With supporters in the stands, there is a lot more electricity in the stadiums this year.
The NFL sent a note to all teams reminding coaches to maintain appropriate behavior.
#Brown Kevin Stefanski said a memo was sent to the league reminding staff members how to behave properly following the scuffle incident with Ronnie Harrison and RB Chiefs coach Greg Lewis.

Hopefully this nasty incident will soon be in the rearview mirror.
