Tempers flared during Sunday’s XFL matchup between the Tampa Bay Vipers and New York Guardians, and we got to see the league’s first ejection because of it. Vipers defensive tackle Ricky Walker was booted from the game after he punched Guardians offensive lineman Ian Silberman in the helmet. Walker, 23, spent some time with the Dallas Cowboys after he was passed over in the 2019 NFL Draft. He tallied four tackles before being ejected.
