The Buffalo Bills‘ Bobby Hart was suspended for one game after punching a Tennessee Titans coach while swinging at a player.

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

“Your 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 he issues the suspension.

This is Hart’s third stint with the Bills, having been signed by them in March of last year. However, he didn’t make the final roster and was picked up by the Miami Dolphins. Hart never suited up for Miami, was released and signed again to Buffalo’s practice squad, before Tennessee scooped him up. Buffalo signed Hart off the Titans’ practice squad last November and signed him to a one-year deal in March.
