St. Louis Rams CB Lamarcus Joyner Will Not Be Suspended For Knocking Out Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater

New, comments

Suspension? No. Fine? Perhaps.

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Per NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, St. Louis Rams CB Lamarcus Joyner will not be suspended:

If I'm being honest, I'm not sure how Joyner avoided a suspension for this other than perhaps some testimony:

That's just a vicious, late, unnecessary hit. Period. I'm all down for the physicality of Fisherball, but if that was my quarterback, I'd be just as heated as Vikings fans who called it a "cheap shot." Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer himself was none too pleased, taking aim directly at Rams Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams. Former Patriots safety and notorious cheap shot and dirty football expert Rodney Harrison weighed in relating a barely tangential and circumstantial story about Jeff Fisher.

In the end, it's another bullet for opponents to point to on the Jeff Fisher/Gregg Williams resume to push the "dirty/cheap" reputation.
