Bobby Hart of the Buffalo Bills was suspended for one game after punching a Tennessee Titans coach while punching a player.

The NFL announced that Hart violated unsportsmanlike conduct rules after Monday night’s game.

“His aggressive conduct could have caused serious injury and clearly does not reflect the high standards of sportsmanship expected of a professional,” NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan wrote to Hart when issuing the suspension.

This is Hart’s third season with the Bills, having been signed by them in March of last year. However, he did not make the final roster and was drafted by the Miami Dolphins. Hart never dressed for Miami, was released and re-signed with Buffalo’s practice squad, before being picked up by Tennessee. Buffalo signed Hart off the Titans’ practice squad last November and signed him to a one-year deal in March.

Hart spent his first three seasons with the New York Giants and the next three with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hart has started 66 of his 79 games with the Giants and Bengals, but has started just one of his last six with the Bills and Titans since last season.
