Mike Evans and Marshon Lattimore weren’t the only players that got into an altercation during a game in Week 2. Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Bobby Hart was involved in an altercation with a Tennessee Titans player that left a Titans head coach injured.
The incident occurred following the Bills’ 41-7 victory over the Titans.
The NFL released this statement:
The statement was released by NFL VP of Football Operations Jon Runyan. In the letter, Runyan wrote:
“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.”
Hart will be eligible to return to the Bills’ active roster on Monday, Sept. 26th following the team’s Sept. 25th game against the Miami Dolphins.
