Following Buffalo’s Week 2 meeting on Monday against the Tennessee Titans, the league announced that Hart had been suspended. Per a NFL release, Hart swung a punch at a Titans player after the 41-7 final and missed, hitting a coach as a substitute.

The Bills are slated to face the Miami Dolphins (2-0) in Week 3 on the road on Sunday. Hart won’t.

The story took a little bit of a twist on Wednesday as Hart claimed at his hearing with the league that a Titans player, defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons, spit at him. That’s what Hart said caused his response.

Despite Hart’s side noting there was video evidence somewhere of that, there has yet to be any motion taken against Simmons.

By way of how the team feel about incident, Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott declined to comment on the incident on Thursday.

The team appears to not be holding it over Hart’s head, though.

After not giving and opinion on the matter, McDermott said he’s “looking forward to getting (Hart) back when he’s back.”

Without Hart within the lineup, the Bills will likely activate offensive lineman Tommy Doyle for Sunday’s game to supply depth along the offensive line. Doyle had previously been inactive in Week 2.
