NFL Considers Suspending Broncos LB Joe Mays for Hit on Matt Schaub

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

ESPN is reporting that the NFL is considering suspending Denver Broncos linebacker Joe Mays for the hit that left Matt Schaub without a chunk of his left ear.


Well, that escalated quickly.

When Joe Mays laid the wood to Matt Schaub, immediate reaction around the country speculated that Mays would be fined for the incident. However, ESPN is reporting that the NFL is considering suspending Denver Broncos linebacker Joe Mays for the hit that left Matt Schaub missing a chunk of ear. For the Broncos, this couldn't be any worse. The linebacker depth is already thin because of DJ Williams being suspended for a DUI earlier in the year.

Joe Mays is not that kind of person, however, and the hit wasn't meant to hurt Matt Schaub.

More details will be provided when they become available.

For what it's worth, after Joe Mays apologized to Matt Schaub, Schaub indicated that there was no ill will.
