ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso was ejected from the third quarter of Sunday’s match against the Buffalo Bills following being penalized for a late hit Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
Alonso dove sideways in to Allen because the newcomer slid on third-and-9 at the ending of a 9-yard scramble. Alonso’s leg struck Allen on his helmet, even sparking a scuffle between both teams.
Bills running LeSean McCoy hurried to get a 9-yard touchdown after the drama to provide the Bills a 28-14 lead.
It seemed that Alonso tried to put on up on this particular hit, but he is a repeat offender in terms of hitting sliding quarterbacks.
Alonso, who was fined $9,115 for that struck texted Flacco a apology.
In the next quarter of a 27-24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts last month, Alonso got a roughing the passer penalty for hitting a slumping Andrew Luck in a scramble. After that match, Alonso said it was just like this Flacco struck and he tried to pull .
“There was nothing I can do,” Alonso said. “I fell to him. Right when I felt him slide, I kind of felt like I gave up myself, too. At the end of your afternoon, I don’t think there is. Maybe I could watch the film and watch. From this drama, I remember feeling like there is nothing I will do.”
