Lions’ Jamie Collins ejected after helmet bumps referee

The first ejection of the 2020 NFL season was a strange one.

Lions linebacker Jamie Collins, a former Patriot, was thrown out in the second quarter of the team’s Week 1 game against the Bears after he made contact with referee Alex Kemp. Collins, 30, lowered his helmet seemingly trying to discuss a previous play with the official, but the top of Collins’ helmet made contact with Kemp’s chest, and Kemp promptly ended Collins’ afternoon early, flagging him for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Collins started in what was his first game with Detroit after joining the team on a three-year, $30 million contract.
