NFL Network's Michael Silver reported Lynch watched the rest of the game from the stands after he was ejected.

The NFL announced Friday that Lynch has been suspended one game for unsportsmanlike conduct after making contact with an official during the second quarter of Thursday's win over the Chiefs. Jon Runyan, NFL Vice President of Football Operations, issued the following statement about Lynch's actions against the Chiefs.

Lynch was on the sideline at the time of the brawl that started after Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was hit late.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was ejected Thursday night after shoving an official when he ran onto the field during a scuffle against the Kansas City Chiefs.

That will be up to the Raiders to address if they choose.

The Raiders rallied to win 31-30 on a touchdown pass by Carr on the final play, and Lynch was in the locker room after the game congratulating his teammates.

Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch let everyone know what time it was when he returned to the league with an obscene gesture that netted him a fine for unsportsmanlike conduct Week 1 of the season when Oakland was on the road against the Titans.

After temporarily retiring in 2016, Lynch has rushed for 266 yards and two touchdowns on a 3.7-yards-per-carry average to go along with four receptions for 38 yards in 2017.
