*The NFL is said to be mulling potential discipline for New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr., but sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that he’s likely to get a one-game suspension.
Beckham would be suspended for his actions during the Giants’ 38-35 loss to the Panthers on Sunday, during which he delivered a deliberate shot to the head of Carolina cornerback Josh Norman after the play was over. Beckham also incurred three personal foul penalties Sunday.
“All the concussion stuff that’s going around, they’re trying to prevent head-to-head, and if that wasn’t the blatant head to head, I don’t know what is,” Norman told ESPN’s Mike & Mike on Monday, also calling Beckham the Batman nemesis “Two-Face.”
Beckham and Norman went at it almost from the start of the game. They repeatedly were shoving and wrestling with each other. On one drive, Beckham was flagged twice for unnecessary roughness and Norman also drew an unnecessary roughness penalty.
The league said it would crack down on fighting, but the officials let Odell Beckham Jr. get away with it in Sunday’s loss to Carolina.
Norman said Beckham should have been ejected and that he hoped the league would punish the wide receiver.
“I hope the league office gets a chance to review the film and see what they can do, because players like that don’t deserve to be in the game,” Norman said. “I mean, it’s ridiculous.”
The NFL said in a statement that the decision to eject a player can be made by the on-field officials only.
