CINCINNATI -- Jacksonville defensive tackle John Henderson and Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth were ejected for trading blows Sunday in the third quarter.

Henderson was penalized for a blow to Whitworth's head while rushing the passer. Whitworth's helmet flew off, and Henderson grabbed the lineman around the head, with his left hand in his face. Whitworth broke free and threw two left-handed punches at Henderson.

Both players were penalized for personal fouls and were ejected. Henderson waved to jeering fans as he headed for the tunnel.
