Lee reacted to the moment after the game:
Some defended Blount for his actions:
Blount had run for 38 yards on eight carries before shoving Lee.
Blount's ejection likely didn't alter the outcome of the game. The Lions trailed 30-13 when he departed, with Detroit's drive subsequently culminating in a touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford to Marvin Jones Jr. to help make it a 30-20 game.
The ejection does add to what has been a rough start to the 2018 season for Detroit and first-year head coach Matt Patricia. The Lions allowed 48 points and 349 yards to the New York Jets in a Week 1 home defeat and now sit at 0-2.
Things don't get much easier for Detroit before its bye in Week 6 either. The Lions host the New England Patriots on Sept. 23 and then have games against the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers.
