Jeremy Lane: NFL investigating Seahawks player being taken down on sideline

The Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014, and won themselves a trip to the Super Bowl to take on the Denver Broncos. During the game though, there was a weird incident that involved Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane and him being taken out by a random man on the 49ers sideline.

In the second quarter, Seattle punted from their own 41-yard-line on fourth and 20. Lane was on the Seattle special teams unit and he began running downfield after the ball was punted away. He was pushed out of bounds by two 49ers' players, but that was when things got weird.

While running and trying to make his way back onto the field of play, an unknown man pushed Jeremy Lane to the ground.

Looking at replays, some may say that it wasn't done on purpose and Lane may have been accidentally knocked down. Replays clearly show that the man, in 49ers attire, leaned forward and looked to purposely shoulder block Lane to the ground.

Reports are already surfacing that the NFL is going to look into the situation and see who the person on the 49ers sideline was and if his actions were purposeful.

Many may recall Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin interfering in an on-field play back in November against the Baltimore Ravens. Even though Tomlin said it was an accident, the coach was fined $100,000 by the league.
