Odell Beckham Likely Facing One-Game Suspension From the NFL (Video)
NFL wideout sensation Odell Beckham had a hard time keeping his cool in Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, and as a result, he’s likely looking at a one-game suspension by the league. Beckham was not only hit with three personal fouls over the course of the game, but he also delivered a late head shot against trash-talking corner Josh Norman.
The Giants were down 35-7 at one point in the third quarter, and Giants head coach Tom Coughlin considered pulling Beckham due to the on-field issues he had seen. But when the Giants began mounting their improbable comeback, Coughlin had to leave his best offensive weapon out there.
The word on Beckham’s suspension should come today or tomorrow after the league has had a chance to review and confer. Here’s footage of one of the many skirmishes between the wide receiver and the Panthers cornerback:
Josh Norman seems to have made a career out of getting under wide receivers’ skin, but the Beckham case seems to be the most egregious instance this season.
