Browns’ Tretter calls for discipline against KC assistant


CLEVELAND — Browns center JC Tretter believes Kansas City assistant coach Greg Lewis should be discipline­d by the NFL for his role in a sideline skirmish with Cleveland safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. on Sunday.

Harrison was ejected from Cleveland’s 33-29 loss in the first quarter after he forcefully pushed Lewis, who shoved the Browns safety after coming over to help Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Tretter, the NFL players’ union president, didn’t condone Harrison’s behavior, but said Lewis needs to be held accountabl­e by the league for his actions.

“I expect that the coach gets held to the same standard – if not a higher standard – than Ronnie,” Tretter said on a Zoom call. “Being the first one in there and being a coach, putting his hands on an opposing player.

“I don’t think there’s any room for that in this league.” An NFL spokesman said the incident is under review and that Harrison will not be suspended.

It’s likely he’ll be fined.
