Colts LB Shamarko Thomas Becomes First Player To Get Ejected By NFL’s New Rules

The NFL instituted a new rule this offseason that allows officials to penalize and eject players if them deem a player to have used the crown of his helmet to hit another player’s head.

Colt’s LB Shamarko Thomas was the first to learn about the extent of the rule the hard way, getting ejected from the first preseason game due to a hit on Seahawks WR David Moore.


The play resulted in the ejection and a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty assessed to the Indianapolis.
