Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Bobby Hart has been handed a one-match suspension for his conduct in Monday’s win against the Tennessee Titans.
According to the league, Hart tried to hit a Titans player but missed and hit a coach instead.
NFL Vice President of Football Operations Jon Runyan said in his note to Hart: “As both teams were heading to the tunnel, you walked directly across the field to seek out your opponent.
“You approached him near the end zone and a coach had to hold you back as others shook hands. Once you and your opponent were in the end zone near the tunnel, you confronted him and immediately swung at him with a closed fist, striking the head of a Tennessee coach.
“Your aggressive conduct could have caused serious injury and clearly does not reflect the high standards of sportsmanship expected of a professional.”
According to ESPN, Hart plans to appeal the suspension. As it stands however, he will miss the Week 3 matchup against the Miami Dolphins.
