Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman was ejected in the third quarter of Sunday's 37-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams for throwing a punch.

Freeman and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald got into a scuffle after L.A. linebacker Cory Littleton intercepted a pass that bounced off the hands of receiver Mohamed Sanu.

Freeman and Donald grappled, with the massive defensive lineman putting the RB on skates. The frustrated running back then swung a fist. Freeman was eventually taken to the ground by a referee.

The ejection was bad news for a Falcons offense that saw running back Ito Smith leave with a head and neck injury early in the tilt. Freeman was ejected after rushing for 19 yards on seven attempts and adding two catches for six yards.
