The NFL has suspended Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Bobby Hart for one game over an incident that unfolded after Monday night's matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
John Runyon, the NFL's vice president of football operations, issued a statement explaining the punishment for violations of the league's non-player conduct policy.
After the Bills' 41–7 victory, Hart faced a Tennessee player on the field.
He threw a punch with a clenched fist that instead hit a Titans coach in the head.
"Your aggressive conduct could have resulted in serious injury and clearly does not reflect the high standards of sportsmanship expected of a professional,"
Runyon wrote in a letter to Hart.
Hart, who started one of three matches he played with Tennessee last season, played 17 snaps in Monday night's win.
He saw the field for only two plays on the Los Angeles Rams in Buffalo Week 1.
Tackle has played for four teams since the New York Giants selected him in the seventh round in 2015.
Barring a successful appeal,
Hart will miss Sunday's match against the Miami Dolphins.
