Commanders WR Curtis Samuel ejected after brawl vs. Giants

Curtis Samuel was ejected from the Washington Commanders' 31-19 defeat against the New York Giants.

The Commanders wide receiver and Giants cornerback Cor'Dale Flott were both tossed for their roles in a fight that broke out near the stands in Sunday's game.

Samuel came running to the aid of Sam Howell after his quarterback was hit late out of bounds by Giants safety Xavier McKinney.

Left tackle Charles Leno Jr. and Samuel immediately raced to Howell's defense and confronted McKinney. As Leno and McKinney shoved each other just below the stands, Samuel and Flott started a shoving match that turned into punches.
