NFL To Suspend Joe Mays One Game For Matt Schaub Hit

New, comments

The NFL has punished Denver Broncos linebacker Joe Mays by hitting him with a 1-game suspension for his hit against Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

What was rumored on Monday has come to pass on Tuesday with Adam Schefter reporting that the NFL has given Broncos' linebacker Joe Mays a 1-game suspension for his hit on Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.

Mays was also hit with a $50,000 fine.

Schaub left the game for one play before returning and told reporters after the game that he lost part of his ear during the collision. Mays has since apologized to Schaub on two different occasions, but the NFL has come down hard on the Broncos starting middle linebacker. Mays has appealed the suspension. No word on when that appeal might be heard by the NFL.
