49ers LB Kwon Alexander Ejected During Win Over Buccaneers

49ers linebacker Kwon Alexander, formerly of the Buccaneers, got ejected for lowering his helmet when he hit Jameis Winston on a third-down keeper in Sunday’s season opener, Cam Inman of Bayareanewsgroup reports.

That lower-the-helmet rule was an emphasis NFL officials planned to enforce this season, and the 49ers were apprised of such targeting dangers when officials met with the 49ers early in training camp.

Alexander’s ejection came on the penultimate play of the first quarter with the 49ers leading 3-0. He played the previous four seasons with Tampa Bay, a tenure that ended with him tearing a knee ligament last October.
