Raeshan Jenkins came out of the Jaguars’ most anticipated loss early Sunday afternoon.
The safety was thrown out for throwing a punch on 49ers wide receiver Javan Jennings in the second quarter. The Jaguars lost 10-0 at the time.
Jenkins and Jennings were caught during the 49ers wideout Deborah Samuel’s run and continued to get involved after the whistle. During the quarrel, Jennings’ helmet was torn, then Jenkins hit him in the face with an open right hand. The referee threw the flag following the swing and with 9:42 left in the first half, Jenkins was thrown for unnecessary roughness.
Instead of facing 4th-and-2, the 49ers went down first with a penalty and then took a 17-0 lead to score two games.
Jenkins, the Jaguars’ starting free safety, entered Jacksonville’s first season 2-7.
The 49ers held a 30-10 lead late in the fourth quarter.
