La’el Collins ejected for throwing punches

Cowboys right tackle La'el Collins took exception on what he considered a late hit on his quarterback along the Dallas sideline.

After defensive end William Bradley-King hit Dak Prescott as Prescott threw away the ball as he was headed out of bounds early in the fourth quarter, Collins went after Bradley-King. Throwing punches at Bradley-King earned him a disqualification.

Bradley-King’s only penalty was offsides, which was superseded by Collins’ penalty.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott, who was not in the game at the time, also got involved. He shoved Bradley-King several times but was not penalized.

The Cowboys lead 27-14 with 5:09 remaining.

Earlier in the half, left tackle Tyron Smith left with an ankle injury after getting rolled from behind.

  1. Dak and the offense has a lot of work to do. Collins can go either way, stay disciplined or actually the game of football is full of emotions that come naturally.
    A win is win just like last week. Road games never easy.

    This team lacks discipline and that’s on the HC.

    I don’t think so. The Cowboys had this kind of thing going on long before McCarthy got there and McCarthy’s Packer teams weren’t known for nonsense like this.

    I think you need to look a little higher on the pay scale.

  3. I don’t mind a team mate defending his QB…. IMO I think Dak and Dunk has something really wrong with him that no one is talking about.

  4. Discipline?? The Cowboys were handing out some discipline for a dirty play on their QB. Kudos to them for not letting a team getting blown out get away with trying to injure your players. The Giants(Hernandez) employ this strategy everytime they play the Cowboys.

  5. Discipline ? This is a team. You stick up for your teammate. The hit was late and dirty push on Dak. That washington player lucky that’s all he got

  6. That was not throwing a punch. Watch it again. A hard push, perhaps. I think the refs over-reacted to a player defending his quarterback. I can understand a penalty, but not ejecting the player.
