Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid was ejected from Thursday's game after delivering a late hit to the helmet of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Several members of the Steelers' offensive line came to their quarterback's defense, leading to a brief scuffle between the two teams.
