Carolina Panthers DE Frank Alexander was ejected late in the first half of the Panthers’ season-opener against the Seattle Seahawks after attempting to punch Seahawks OT Breno Giacomini.

After pushing Giacomini in the face, Alexander followed up with a swing to his head. Alexander was ejected, and he’s likely to face a fine by the NFL for the bone-headed penalty.

The timing was bad since it wiped out a huge sack on QB Russell Wilson, but fellow DE Charles Johnson made up for it by sacking Wilson and recovering a fumble later on the drive.
