NFL suspends Bills’ Bobby Hart one game

Bills offensive tackle Bobby Hart has been suspended for one game in consequence of an incident after Monday night’s game against the Titans.

The suspension was handed down by NFL Vice President of Football Operations Jon Runyan, the second suspension within the NFL this week following the suspension given to Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans.

“As each teams were heading to the tunnel, you walked directly across the sphere to hunt down your opponent,” Runyan wrote in a letter to Hart. “You approached him near the top zone and a coach had to carry you back as others shook hands. When you and your opponent were in the long run zone near the tunnel, you confronted him and immediately swung at him with a closed fist, striking the pinnacle of a Tennessee coach. Your aggressive conduct could have caused serious injury and clearly doesn’t reflect the high standards of sportsmanship expected of knowledgeable.”

Hart has the precise to appeal, but when he loses the appeal he’ll miss Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. Hart is a backup who has played 19 offensive snaps and 12 special teams snaps this season.
