FOR VIOLATION OF PLAYER SAFETY RULES


DANNY TREVATHAN of the Chicago Bears has been suspended without pay for two games for a violation of safety-related playing rules in Thursday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

 

NFL Vice President of Football Operations JON RUNYAN issued the suspension for a violation of Rule 12, Section 2, Article 6 (i) which states that “there shall be no unnecessary roughness. This shall include, but will not be limited to: (i) using any part of a player’s helmet or facemask to butt, spear, or ram an opponent violently or unnecessarily;”

Trevathan will be eligible to return to the Bears’ active roster on Monday, October 16 following the team’s October 15 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

 

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the suspension may be appealed within three business days. Appeals are heard and decided by either DERRICK BROOKS or JAMES THRASH, the officers jointly appointed and compensated by the NFL and NFLPA to decide appeals of on-field player discipline.
