A former Buffalo Bills wide receiver is in major trouble after he was spotted in an on-field fight before a CFL game that ended with him swinging a helmet at an opponent.
Duke Williams, who played for the Bills for two seasons, returned to the Canadian Football League this season and wasted little time fighting before the opening kickoff of the 2022 Touchdown Atlantic game.
The video showed Williams getting into an argument with Argonauts defensive back Shaq Richardson, then throwing Richardson’s helmet back at him. Williams was also accused of spitting in Richardson’s face during the incident.
As TSN reported, the Saskatchewan Roughriders wide receiver has been suspended one game for his actions.
“Such pre-game hostilities are unacceptable and the use of a helmet as a weapon is especially dangerous,” said CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie in a statement. “Neither is to be tolerated.”
Argos defensive lineman Eli Mencer also received a one-game ban for derogatory language towards an official during the same game.
The Argos won the contest by a score of 30-24.
