DiSandro was ejected from lastat Lincoln Financial Field after a scuffle with Niners linebacker Dre Greenlaw on the sidelines.
Greenlaw had been issued a penalty for unnecessary roughness after a tackle on wide receiver DeVonta Smith near the Eagles' sideline. A scuffle between Smith and Greenlaw ensued, and DiSandro got in between the two players and separated them. Greenlaw then put his left hand in DiSandro's face.
The Eagles said in a statement that DiSandro will continue serving the team despite his absence from the sideline.
"This is an ongoing conversation with the NFL, and we are going to respect the restriction that is currently in place," the Eagles said in a statement to NFL Network. "Although Dom will not be on the sideline this Sunday, he will continue to fulfill his role with the team in all other capacities."
After the incident, the NFL sent teams a memo reminding them that team personnel are not allowed to make physical contact with another club's players or personnel. Game officials or coaches are the only ones permitted to try to break up any altercations and any violations could lead to fines or suspensions, according to the memo.
"He seemed like a genuine guy, seemed like a guy that everybody loved in the building," Greenlaw said this week. "Honestly, I really hate that it escalated and went to that. That's never something I ever been a part of or seen in the game."
ESPN reports DiSandro may be fined by the NFL after the incident.
DiSandro was on the scoreboard at the Sixers' home game against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night - a game the Sixers won 125-114.
Calls on social media to "Free Big Dom" are only going to intensify after this absence. Former Eagles defensive tackle Beau Allen said all he wants for Christmas is to see Big Dom back on the sidelines again.
