CLEVELAND — Last week, it was reported that Cleveland Browns safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. was fined for shoving Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Greg Lewis during the Week 1 matchup between the two teams.
As it turns out, Harrison wasn't the only one involved in the skirmish to be punished for it.
While he wasn't ejected from the game -- as Harrison was -- Lewis was ultimately fined for the incident, according to Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson. Although it remains unclear how much Lewis was fined, Browns center and NFL Players Association President JC Tretter told Robinson that it had been communicated to the NFLPA that Lewis was, in fact, fined.
Harrison was reportedly fined $12,128 for his role in the skirmish, which occurred following an 11-yard pass from Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire on Kansas City's opening drive of its Week 1 win over Cleveland.
After bumping into two Chiefs offensive linemen, Harrison appeared to step on Edwards-Helaire, which led to Lewis pushing Harrison. From there, the fourth-year safety shoved Lewis in the face with an open palm with the play resulting in a personal foul on both teams and Harrison being ejected from the game.
Speaking to reporters one day later, Tretter said that while there was no excusing Harrison's response, he didn't believe that it was right for an opposing coach to make contact with a player.
"I would expect that the coach gets held to the same standard -- if not a higher standard than Ronnie -- being the first one in there and being a coach, putting his hands on an opposing player," Tretter said. "I don’t think there’s any room for that in this league."
