Dre Greenlaw Fined Over $10,000 for Hit on DeVonta Smith

Published on


San Francisco 49ers linebacker, Dre Greenlaw, has been hit with a hefty fine of $10,927 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness following a controversial hit on Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeVonta Smith. The incident unfolded during the third quarter, resulting in a sideline altercation and the ejection of Greenlaw from the game.

The hit in question occurred when Greenlaw picked up DeVonta Smith and forcefully slammed him to the ground, sparking a heated exchange between the two teams in front of the Eagles’ bench. The fallout from this clash extended beyond the players, involving Eagles’ senior advisor to the general manager/chief security officer, Dom DiSandro.

As a consequence of the incident, Greenlaw was disqualified from the game, and DiSandro was removed from the sideline for the remainder of the match. However, the drama does not end there, as the NFL has announced that DiSandro will be banned from the sideline for the upcoming Eagles-Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium.

In response to the ban, the Philadelphia Eagles released a statement, saying, “This is an ongoing conversation with the NFL, and we are going to respect the restriction that is currently in place. Although Dom will not be on the sideline this Sunday, he will continue to fulfill his role with the team in all other capacities.”

Despite the tension between the two parties, Greenlaw and DiSandro have reportedly exchanged apologies through intermediaries. In a statement to ESPN, Greenlaw expressed remorse, stating, “He seemed like a genuine guy. Seemed like a guy that everybody loved in the building. So, I hate that, honestly. I really hate that it even escalated and went to that.”

Meanwhile, ESPN reports that additional discipline may be forthcoming as the league continues to review the matter.

In addition to Greenlaw’s fine, Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter received a fine of $16,937 for unnecessary roughness during an extra point in the third quarter against the 49ers. Carter’s late hit resulted in his second infraction this season, justifying the higher fine.

San Francisco’s Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles also faced consequences, receiving a fine of $9,940 for unnecessary roughness and a facemask penalty during the game.

The NFL issued a total of 22 fines from Week 13 of the season, with the collected funds being directed to the Professional Athletes Foundation and the NFL Foundation, emphasizing the league’s commitment to supporting charitable causes.

The Eagles and Cowboys are set to face off in a highly anticipated Sunday Night Football clash, and the return of key players on both sides adds an extra layer of intrigue to the NFC East rivalry. Fans can expect an intense battle as both teams look to strengthen their playoff positioning.

In a surprising development, cornerback Isaiah Rodgers is listed under Reserve/Suspended by Commissioner, with a suspension for the entire 2023 season due to gambling. Rodgers is eligible to apply for reinstatement in 2024.

Despite missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday, cornerback Darius Slay is confirmed to start, having fully participated in Friday’s session. Wide receiver Julio Jones, who had limited participation on Friday after being listed as DNP on Wednesday and Thursday, is expected to be available for the game. This game should be the match of the year for both teams.
