Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith has been tossed from the game for apparently tossing an official out of the way.

Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith has been thrown out of their week 5 game against the Titans after he apparently threw an official out of the way during an altercation. Eye for an eye?

You can see where it starts but not get a great look at where Smith actually throws him out of the way.

The rookie was off to a nice start on the day with three tackles and a fumble recovery as the Vikings lead 10-0 over the Titans, but he'll have to spend the rest of the game in the locker room and contemplating what kind of fine or suspension could be forthcoming.

The Vikings drafted Smith out of Notre Dame in part because of his physicality but someone should have told him that these aren't the replacements anymore. If he had done that to Ed Hochuli, he might have gotten something a lot worse than an ejection. He could have gotten a knuckle sandwich from the strongest official in all of sports.
