Did someone on 49ers sidelines knock down Seahawks' Jeremy Lane?
Seahawks gunner Jeremy Lane appears to be taken down by someone on San Francisco's sidelines wearing 49ers sweats.
But on the very same play, Seahawks gunner Jeremy Lane was forced out of bounds, as often happens. But unlike every other punt you've ever seen, it looks like someone on the sidelines in 49ers sweats gave an unsuspecting Lane a forearm shiver as he tried to make his way back onto the field.
It's hard to tell for sure because the view is obscured, and as several commenters point out below, Lane may have actually tripped on the down marker.
Ultimatley, the league will have to decide what happened, intent, etc., but according to NationalFootballPost.com's Jason Cole, "The NFL is expected to look into an incident."
Earlier this season, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was fined $100,000 for finding his way onto the field and inadvertently getting in the way of Ravens returner Jacoby Jones.
