NFL suspends Bills’ Bobby Hart one game

Bills offensive tackle Bobby Hart has been suspended for one game as a result 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 in the NFL this week following the suspension given to Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans.

“As both teams were heading to the tunnel, you walked directly across the field to seek out your opponent,” Runyan wrote in a letter to Hart. “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 has the right to appeal, but if he loses the appeal he will miss Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. Hart is a backup who has played 19 offensive snaps and 12 special teams snaps this season.

  1. As a Bills fan I can tell you full well that this is the most fight we’ve seen out of Bobby Hart since he’s been on the team.

  2. This loser team is just so unlikeable in so many ways. Entitled, arrogant and now starting brawls in the hallways.

    LOL!!

    Jealous, fearful and starting brawls on the Internet!!

  5. So he punched a coach, of the opposing team, in the head, and that is going to get him a 1 game suspension??? I realize the coach was not the target, but that is hardly the point.

  6. Buffalo fans have to celebrate any win they get during the regular season, because come Superbowl time it’s back to watching two other teams via for the title

    The Patriots are indisputably the most disliked team in the history of sports. It was the Yankees, but the Pats surpassed them. And “entitled” and “arrogant” don’t even begin to describe the entire region of New England.

    And you have a short memory. You don’t recall the brawl that the Pats started in a joint practice just a few weeks ago?

  8. Should trade him to the patriots, he’d fit right in to the culture of guys like Kraft and Hernandez.

  10. TB6 is the definition of a troll. He’s not a fan. He just comes on here to get his kicks ragging on other teams.

  11. Looking back most teams that had dynasties in the NFL always became hated,why??? cuz the were always winnning

  12. “You don’t recall the brawl that the Pats started in a joint practice just a few weeks ago?” The revisionist history… The Panthers DB started the fight by cheap shotting a Patriots player in the head that he’d been fighting with in previous practices and sending him to IR, he’s out for the year probably. Then the Patriots had a late shove when Mccaffrey was a step out of bounds afterwards that the Panthers took exception to, and took the fight after the Patriots into the stands. I don’t see how any of that is the Patriots fault. However you want to say it happened though, the Patriots came out of it with a longterm injury to one of their guys.

  13. My bad, godnollid16. I think the initial report I read was that the Pats started it, but when I just looked it up, you’re right- it does seem like they were just responding.

    Thanks for the correction. Wish we had an “edit” function here. I would have just kept the 1st part of my post, which is more accurate.

    The probably won’t post this but here goes, he’s not even a pats fan. All the pats fans I know are knowledgeable and tell it like it is. He doesn’t watch the games. He just freezes the tv screen when it’s showing BB and then does unspeakable things to himself.

    I think you mean more people are jealous beyond belief and scarred for life over the Pats 2 dynasties in the Cap Era, and I understand why.

    Meanwhile, the Bills have won absolutely nothing. Ever.

    They won yesterday. By a lot.

    Showing your age. They won two back-to-back AFL Championships in 1964 and 1965 with some ferocious defenses that could compete today. Keep up dude

  19. I think he took “punch a ticket to the Super Bowl” too literally! Too bad he will be watching it from his couch along with the rest of the Bills!

  20. also, maybe hart is from the famous 60’s duo singers and song writers named Boyce & Hart…google it

  21. “Your conduct clearly does not reflect the high standards of sportsmanship expected of a professional.”

    Yeah kinda like TB12 never bothering to go shake the opposing team’s quarterback’s hand when he loses. Poor sport Tommy…

    The Bills will really miss him for those 9.5 snaps he would have played.

    Wouldn’t surprise me to see him cut because of this following his suspension.

    GO BILLS!!!

    That should be 5 games and mandatory weekly PED testing.

    ——————————

    Still waiting for Alvin Kamara’s suspension for fracturing a man’s face while punching him after he knocked the man unconscious inside a Las Vegas hotel. The police even have video of this which somehow hasn’t been leaked.

    Until Kamara is suspended the league has no business suspending any other player for violence.

  24. I would venture a guess that a player of his caliber making headlines for something like this will earn him a trip to the unemployment line. I’m a Fins fan but this isn’t the kind of distraction a team needs when they are legitimate contenders. Hopefully the in-house punishment is strong enough or they release him. He’s more than earned it especially after a lopsided win.

  25. For all the people talking trash about Hart:
    He was confronting Titans DT Simmons who was playing dirty late in the 4th quarter… they were jawing at each other upon entering the tunnel and Hart swung on him… unfortunately a Titans coach was in between them. Hart shouldn’t have swung at Simmons and Simmons shouldn’t be playing dirty… end of story. It was an unfortunate accident between two players.

  26. At least he didn’t sneak and cheap shot him like Evans. Somehow a 1 game suspension for Evans seems low

  27. The Bills can’t deactivate thier punter…He’s the holder for Bass, so he’ll likely be needed 6 or 7 times against the Patriots. They scored on touchdown on every single possession in the last matchup, a playoff game nonetheless.
