Apparently failing to realize that this is, in fact, still the preseason, Pittsburgh CB Ike Taylor and WR Hakeem Nicks were ejected from tonight’s game early in the first quarter for fighting and throwing punches.
According to the Steelers Rapid Reports , Keenan Lewis – who’s battling for a nickel CB job – has taken Taylor’s place with the first team. He’s facing off against Giants WR Mario Manningham.
UPDATE (8:34 p.m.): This is what Nicks said after he was ejected: “I’ve never been ejected from a game in my life until tonight. I was blocking downfield, and the next thing I knew (CB Ike Taylor) was throwing punches so I tried to defend myself. I let my coaches and teammates down.""
