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.

    Yeah that was a big dumb haymaker to the side of the helmet.

    Idiot. These guys collide at full speed all game, but then think that an open handed swing to the helmet is somehow gonna hurt a person.

    Best I can tell thanks to Fox’s very brief analysis of the incident, Lutui was on top of Harris, belly to back for a few seconds. Not sure if he was trying to get off him or not, they showed it only once so it was hard to tell if Lutui was intentionally doing something to him.
