Two plays after an illegal formation penalty negated a touchdown, Chiefs offensive lineman Barry Richardson was called for a false start on third-and-goal from the 2-yard line. It was his second penalty of the game and he became infuriated when pulled from the field.
On the next down, he started to run back toward the huddle but was followed onto the field by special teams coach Steve Hoffman and told to return to the bench. Richardson then turned around and started back, but put his hand on Hoffman's chest and shoved him roughly.
Richardson returned to the lineup on the next possession.
"What you're seeing out of our guys, and what's an exciting thing to me as a head coach, is we have a lot of guys who really care," he said. "We had a penalty in the red (zone), and I think (coaches) just wanted to calm him down a little bit and let him regroup. He's a prideful guy who didn't want to be out and was upset at himself, and that's a good thing. These guys care."
