Titans' Haynesworth stomps on foe, ejected

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 1, 2006) -- Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was ejected early in the third quarter after he stomped on Dallas center Andre Gurode's face.

Julius Jones had just scored on a 5-yard touchdown run, putting Dallas up 20-6. Gurode's helmet came off, and Haynesworth, standing over him, used his right foot and stomped Gurode's head.

A flag was thrown, and Haynesworth followed an official toward the Titans' sideline, protesting.

Haynesworth had pulled off his helmet and slammed it to the ground, prompting another flag. Referee Jerome Boger disqualified Haynesworth, and the player walked off the field after talking briefly with Titans coach Jeff Fisher.

Gurode walked off the field with ice held to his cheek. He received stitches above his left eye.
