If you heard that a Bengals player put an opponent in a headlock, took him to the ground and then starting punching him in the helmet, you'd probably have a few guesses as to who the culprit was. One name that wouldn't ever enter your mind: A.J. Green.

Yet during the first half of Sunday's Bengals-Jaguars game, there was Green throwing haymakers at cornerback Jalen Ramsey

Both Green and Ramsey were ejected. After the game -- the Bengals were shut out in the second half and lost 23-7 -- Ramsey didn't talk to reporters, but Green did.

ESPN.com's Katherine Terrell added that Green's teammates "are clearly behind him" and "multiple team members spoke out in his defense."
