After the Buffalo Bills gave the Green Bay Packers their fourth straight loss on Monday night, head coach Matt LaFleur preached “discipline,” but it appeared that his message was intended for rookie linebacker Quay Walker because of his involvement in a sideline altercation.
Walker was dismissed from the game after receiving a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the second quarter for what appeared to be a shove on inactive tight end Zach Davidson of the Bills practice squad.
He “shoved a coach, right,” the referees on the field could be heard shouting over the microphone. But according to The Buffalo News, Walker was upset with Davidson because it appeared that Davidson rolled on his legs after tackling James Cook, a former Georgia teammate.
After yet another defeat, AARON RODGERS of the PACKERS discusses discipline, saying, “We’re hurting ourselves.”
“We need to get better in every aspect.” several things After the game, LaFleur stated, “I believe there’s just the discipline aspect as well.
We’re losing games because of penalties, which also subtract points from the scoreboard. Drives are being extended. You need to maintain your composure when things get rough. Players must not be leaving the team due to personal fouls or engaging in shoving matches on the sidelines. That disappointed me.
Walker gave his version of the story in the locker room before apologizing for the shove.

“I just felt someone push me from behind as I was standing up. I maybe misconstrued what it was, but I just felt the shove, and I’m over there on their sideline.” Just pouring with emotions. I just reacted out of emotion because I’m so amped and all that,’ he said.
“As soon as I did that, I immediately regretted what I had done, but I’m going to have to live with it and face it; I’m willing to do it.” Although I felt like I was pushed, which may not have been the case, I apologized to the man I pushed nonetheless and said, “I’m sorry for what I did and I simply have to face it.”
