Short day for Tommie Harris

Tommie Harris has been sent to the showers before he had time to break a sweat.

Harris, the Bears’ defensive tackle, was ejected from today’s game against the Arizona Cardinals just 1:05 into the game for punching Cardinals offensive tackle Deuce Lutui.

The punch came in a pile-up after a Cardinals running game, with Harris and Lutui tangled up on the ground. Harris hit Lutui in the face; there was no indication of whether Harris was reacting to something Lutui did.

Referee Ed Hochuli saw the punch and ejected Harris in addition to giving the Bears a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
