During the second quarter of the Jaguars home opener against the Chiefs of Kansas City, Myles Jack was thrown out for beating Demarcus Robinson at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville.

The incident began in the end zone, where Jack is seen pushing Chiefs receiver Sammy Watkins.

Moments earlier, Watkins had eliminated Jack for a play, which made the fourth-year linebacker angry.

Jack and Robinson then began to exchange words.

The Jaguars linebacker then seemed to lose his temper and threw a blow to Robinson, forcing officials to throw him out of the game.

But the unrest did not end there.

Jack had to be stopped by teammates while expressing his anger about being thrown out.

Although Jack was ejected, he refused to leave the game. Two team officers from the Jaguars had to physically guide Jack off the field.

The Jaguars were already faltering with the loss of starting quarterback Nick Foles.

Foles, who won a Super Bowl with the Phildelphia Eagles after coming in for the injured Carson Wentz, was knocked out of the game with a left shoulder injury.

Foles left the bank with medical staff after throwing a 35-meter touchdown pass to DJ Chark in the first quarter against Kansas City. Defensive tackle Chris Jones hit Foles on the ground and landed on him after releasing the ball.

Jacksonville gave Foles a $ 88 million four-year contract in April, even though he never played a full season. Rookie Gardner Minshew replaced Foles.
