Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf was ejected from Sunday’s against the Green Bay Packers game after he got into it with multiple Packers defenders, aggressively grabbing their facemasks. After the ejection, Metcalf was seen trying to stay in the game, appearing in Seattle’s huddle.

This instance came with 1:19 left in the game, so it was not an impactful ejection as the Packers were already up 17-0 on their way to a shutout victory.

Metcalf was ejected, Packers safety Darnell Savage was flagged for taunting, and Seahawks offensive lineman Jamarco Jones was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

And on the next play, as Russell Wilson was calling the play in the huddle, Metcalf snuck back into the huddle, listening for the play, even though he had just been ejected.

Referee Brad Allen ran up to Metcalf and pointed to the sideline. That got announcers laughing in the booth as Allen forced Metcalf back to the sideline.

“Tired of losing,” Metcalf said in his press conference.

Seattle’s offense had stalled throughout the entire game against the Green Bay defense, and Metcalf’s frustrations had finally boiled over. He recorded three catches for 26 yards, totaling eight targets, as the Seahawks were shut out in Wilson’s return from a finger injury. Wilson completed 20 of 40 passes with two interceptions after a recovery that sped past projected timelines. Wilson added postgame: “I don’t think DK is emotional. I think he’s passionate.”

“I think as an offense, we just kind of struggled just to get the ball moving. Some throws were off, some throws were there. I know I had a couple of key drops that I should’ve caught,” Metcalf said.

The loss dropped Seattle to 3-6 on the season, putting them in danger of missing the playoffs. The Seahawks’ chance to rebound will come against the Cardinals on Sunday.
