Nathaniel Hackett says Jerry Jeudy’s referee bump “unacceptable”


Nathaniel Hackett praised Jerry Jeudy’s career game Sunday, but also said the receiver bumping an official in the loss to the Chiefs was “unacceptable.”

“I was told by the referee that it happened, and I went and addressed it right away and talked with him,” Hackett said Monday. “He definitely knew that he was wrong… You can’t do that. We addressed that.”

Jeudy said he was “frustrated” after a Broncos three-and-out in the second quarter with the team down 27-0, and said he was yelling at line judge Tripp Sutter for a holding call he wanted. Jeudy took off his helmet and was screaming at Sutter, and bumped the official as he walked off the field.
