Baltimore Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton was ejected from his team’s game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday and could face supplemental discipline for the hit.
Hamilton hit Titans wide receiver Chris Moore in the red zone early in the second half of the game between the teams being played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
Moore went up to catch a high pass, and Hamilton launched into Moore, connecting with the crown of his helmet to the side of Moore’s head.

Moore tried to get to his feet immediately, but but then stumbled back to the ground. He was evaluated on the field by trainers and was removed from the game. He has been ruled out from returning with a concussion.
Hamilton was given a 15-yard personal foul penalty and after a discussion between the officials, was ejected. The penalty helped the Titans’ drive continue. It finished with a Derrick Henry touchdown to get Tennessee back to within one score. The Titans had been trailing 18-3 at the half, but scored 10 points in the third quarter to make it a game.
Hamilton could face a fine or even a future suspension for the hit. The Ravens’ first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Hamilton entered the season as a starter this year after playing in 16 games and making four starts as a rookie. He has already contributed significantly, with an interception, a forced fumble and three sacks entering Sunday.
Hamilton plays both safety and slot corner for the Ravens. Geno Stone will likely absorb his safety reps, with Art Maulet seeing more playing time in the slot.
The Ravens are looking to rebound from their Week 5 loss to the Steelers and re-gain first place in the AFC North with a win over the Titans.
