Former Pats Player Seymour Punches Roethlisberger

PITTSBURGH (CBS/AP) — Raiders defensive end Richard Seymour was ejected for an openhanded punch to Ben Roethlisberger’s face as the Steelers quarterback was celebrating a touchdown pass.

After completing the 22-yard throw to Emmanuel Sanders, Roethlisberger jumped into the arms of tackle Flozell Adams.
Roethlisberger then began walking forward and appeared to say something to Seymour, who turned and struck the quarterback in the jaw with his open right hand.

As Roethlisberger went to his back, lineman Chris Kemoeatu grabbed the former Patriot. Both Seymour and Kemoeatu drew penalties, but only Seymour was ejected.

Seymour also was ejected Dec. 27 for hitting Browns running back Jerome Harrison after a play was over. Seymour was fined $10,000 for that infraction.

Seymour was traded to Oakland in 2009 after playing eight seasons with the Patriots.
