“He tripped me, kicked me in my knee and kind of messed up my day. … I didn’t know what happened,” Armstead said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. “I have a lot of respect for him, but tripping me, kicking me in my knee, (I) could have got seriously hurt. It was just a dirty play.”

Armstead had a half-sack and three tackles during the game.
