Green Bay Packers rookie linebacker Quay Walker was knocked out of Sunday night’s game against the Detroit Lions after a strange skirmish in the fourth quarter.

Penalty flags came out after the game was over and it appeared officials would give Reed an unnecessary roughness penalty for the hit, but Walker was penalized instead.
Walker was seen shoving a Lions coach who had come out to tend to Swift. The trainer tried to get to Swift, who was on the ground. Replay of the incident showed Walker pushing the coach.
