Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was not ejected from last Sunday’s game after he contacted an official during an outburst.
The receiver will also avoid being suspended for his actions, according to NFL Network. Jeudy became visibly upset after the referee missed what he believed to be a hold call against a Kansas City Chiefs player who was guarding him.
Jeudy removed his helmet, yelled at the referee, and then appeared to collide with the referee as he walked towards the sideline.

Jeudy’s actions were not marked during the game. However, according to NFL rules, “unnecessary physical contact with a game official” can result in a player’s disqualification for the remainder of the game.

After the game, Jeudy told reporters that he was frustrated at the moment and wanted to make a play.
“I was just, on a certain play, I got stopped,” he said. “I was frustrated that we didn’t have things going, so I was playing out of frustration, wanting to make a play for my team. I feel like, at the time, they just held me and that should have been called, but I have to know how to control my anger and just move on.”
The Broncos were being dominated by Kansas City at the time and trailing 27-0.

But Jeudy caught an 18-yard TD reception and a 5-yard TD reception before halftime. He had a great performance with three touchdowns.
Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett mentioned that he spoke to Jeudy as soon as he found out what had happened.
“We addressed him right away. We talked to him. He definitely knew he was wrong,” Hackett said. “That’s unacceptable. You can’t do that. We addressed that, and I know he knows he can’t do that. I know he was very frustrated at the time, but that’s something you can’t do.” “
The former Alabama standout will likely receive fines for the multiple violations, according to NFL Network.
