Washington Redskins’ Reed Ejected After Punching Panthers’ Coleman In Helmet

The Monday night of Jordan Reed could not be any worse. The Washington Redskins tight end who’s playing through a shoulder injury managed only six yards through the first 3 quarters against the Carolina Panthers. And Reed wouldn’t get an opportunity to enhance those numbers in the 4th quarter.

For unknown reasons, the Redskins tight end thought it’d be a great idea to throw a punch at the helmet of Carolina Panthers safety Kurt Coleman late in the 3rd quarter with Washington Redskins in the red zone. Regardless of what Reed was trying to achieve, it did not work. He did manage to get ejected and knocked his team back fifteen years. Washington Redskins settled for a field goal later that drive.

That is how the Monday night went for Washington Redskins. Carolina Panthers were actually eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday, yet still managed to battle harder than the sloppy Washington Redskins in a 26-15 win. Washington Redskins fell to 7-6-1. The loss on Monday night might end up keeping the Washington Redskins out of playoffs.

The offense of Washington Redskins didn’t got going with Kirk Cousins that throw no touchdowns and the game was doing little. Usually, Washington Redskins settled for the field goals when this did put together a good drive. His night was over due to a punch thrown by Kurt Coleman in the late third quarter that led to a flag and ejection, which was unofficially called by Thomas Davis.

Washington Redskins reached Carolina Panthers ten-yard line with thirty-six seconds left during the quarter when Reed gets tangled with Coleman while attempting to block for running Rob Kelley who was basically stopped for a 2-yard loss. After the game ended, Coleman did not appear to release his grasp of Jordan Reed immediately and Reed hit him with his right jab to Coleman’s face mask.

Because of the incident, the ball moved back to Carolina Panthers twenty-seven yard line and Washington Redskins had to settle for a goal. Reed was not in the locker room after the play and Jay Gruden, coach of Washington Redskins, did not see what happened and did not offer any comment.

According to Coleman, he was actually surprised about the punch. He added that if he only knew it was coming, he would have protected himself. But, he knew that tempers flare sometimes and things may happen in the middle of the game and players have to be responsible to control their mindset. Coleman further said that that was just a run play as Reed was trying to block him and he was trying to get off that block. The game seemed over and if there’s one thing that player should ensure, it’s that to never allow someone stay blocked. Although they can be clocked, they will try to do their best to get off the block. Nevertheless, he didn’t know that it could lead to punching him.

Punching Coleman was a dumb move for many reasons. One of these is that it could ruin the red-zone drive of Washington Redskins in the game as they’ll be losing multiple score and Reed will get ejected and he is one of the best players of the team.
