Leonard Fournette Receives One-Game Suspension For Fight 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Nov 27, 2018 3:15 am

Leonard Fournette for one game without pay following his ejection for fighting with Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson on Sunday.

The league said Fournette violated its unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules and as a result will miss Sunday\'s game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Doug Marrone said earlier Monday that he spoke with Fournette and other players on Monday about the fight, which happened late in the third quarter.

\"Those discussions are private, and we discussed all the personal fouls with the team,\" Marrone said. \"We have 22 personal fouls, which leads the league. It is something that stops us from having the opportunity to win football games. I addressed it with the team and addressed it with some players individually.\"

Considering the high-minded language in declaring the suspension to the media, 1 game seems like an awfully small penalty. And with that fight I thought he deserved at least 2 or 3.

Everything is practice.
