Ejection and Further Discipline
San Francisco 49ers’ defensive coach, DiSandro, has been absent from the sidelines due to an altercation with linebacker Greenlaw during Week 13. The incident occurred when Greenlaw suplexed an opponent out of bounds, resulting in a flag for unnecessary roughness. DiSandro intervened, and contact was made with his face. Both Greenlaw and DiSandro were ejected from the game. ESPN reports that the NFL is currently reviewing the situation to determine if additional disciplinary action is necessary.
Apologies and No Hard Feelings
Following the incident, Greenlaw expressed remorse and stated that he and DiSandro had exchanged apologies through intermediaries. The linebacker acknowledged DiSandro as a well-liked individual within the organization and expressed his regret over the escalation of the situation. San Francisco head coach, Kyle Shanahan, echoed these sentiments, emphasizing that he holds no ill-will towards DiSandro. Shanahan emphasized the unfortunate circumstances that led to the loss of a player.
Absence on the Sidelines
As the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles prepare to kick off on Sunday night, it is notable that DiSandro will not be present on the sidelines. The repercussions of the altercation are having a direct impact on the coaching staff’s involvement in the game.
