NASHVILLE — Frustrations boiled over for cornerback Josh Norman and the Washington Redskins after their 25-16 loss at the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night.
Taylor Lewan, the Titans’ three-time Pro Bowl left tackle and graduate of Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, was caught on video by NBC Sports Washington, coming by the Washington bench. Norman threw his helmet at Lewan, slapped at his arm and face mask before bumping up against the left tackle. Titans center Ben Jones got between the men, and Norman slapped at Lewan’s back.
Norman did not comment. Lewan said Norman was throwing a “hissy fit” as the left tackle tried to help running back Derrick Henry up after a run.
“He was trying to hurt Derrick during that 4-minute, and that’s (expletive),” Lewan said. “That’s not the way football is supposed to be played.”
The 27-year-old Lewan attended Cactus Shadows High School in Cave Creek before transferring to Chaparral for his senior year. He played college football at Michigan.
