Lewis shoved Harrison after Harrison got tangled up with Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire on the sideline after making a tackle and appeared to step on him while trying to get away after the play. Harrison responded with a shove drawing flags and an ejection.

NFL Network reported that Lewis received a warning from the league office.

The NFL sent a memo to teams this week warning them about sideline conduct and contact by coaches with opposing players was not allowed.

The incident did not sit well with Browns center and NFLPA president J.C. Tretter, who did not excuse Harrison’s actions.

“Obviously Ronnie can’t retaliate,” Tretter said. “You can’t be the second one in those instances. You’re always going to get called for that. But we can’t have opposing coaches putting their hands on opposing players. We can’t have that.”
