Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller gets ejected after exchange of words with CJ Gardner-Johnson
C.J. Gardner-Johnson has gotten another Chicago Bears player ejected.
Wide receiver Anthony Miller was tossed early in the third quarter after shoving Gardner-Johnson in Sunday's NFC wild-card game in New Orleans. That would be the same Gardner-Johnson who was sucker punched by Javon Wims in Week 8, leading to Wims' ejection.
Gardner-Johnson had ripped out Wims' mouthpiece earlier in that game.
Gardner-Johnson also poked fun last year at Tarik Cohen, Chicago's diminutive running back.
The ejection was especially costly for the Bears, who were already without wide receiver Darnell Mooney and were trailing the No. 2-seeded Saints.
And it's not as if the Bears couldn't see this coming. Miller and Allen Robinson were asked about Gardner-Johnson's habit of getting under the Bears' skin leading up to Sunday's wild-card game and downplayed it.

"Guys like that do what they do," Miller said, according to the Chicago Tribune. "But your bark can’t be louder than your bite, and it’s hard to bite, so I’m not worried about that.”
