Bills offensive lineman Bobby Hart is officially suspended for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.

Hart was suspended for an altercation after Monday night’s game against the Titans. He appealed, and this morning the NFL announced that hearing officer Derrick Brooks upheld the suspension. Brooks is jointly appointed and paid by the NFL and NFL Players Association for his role in determining appeals of player discipline.

The NFL said that after Monday’s game, Hart approached a Titans player, confronted him, and threw a punch that hit a Titans coach. The league has not identified either the Titans player or coach.

On the field, the suspension is not a big loss for the Bills: Hart is a backup who has played just 19 offensive snaps and 12 special teams snaps through two games this season.

  1. Has anyone seen a more obnoxious team that shouldn’t be obnoxious? The 2009/2010 Jets come to mind.

    ================================

    Yes, the Patriots.

  3. Not that I’m against the suspension… it’s definitely warranted.

    But what’s odd is that this didnt happen in the game. Yet you can have a player swinging helmets and hitting other players in a joint practice and NOTHING.

    double standard?

  4. Hart actually swung at Jeff Simmons and missed.. Simmons spit on Hart, and he retaliated for that. That said, hart should know not to do that no matter how deserving the other classless player is. Bills are better than that. Go Bills!

  6. People think we’re obnoxious NOW?

    Wait’ll we start filling up the ol’ trophy case. I can’t speak for all Bills fans, but I certainly plan to be as insufferable as one could imagine as soon as we get the 1st.
