DT suspended for five games
By TIMES WIRES
Published October 3, 2006
NASHVILLE - Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was given a five-game suspension - the longest for on-field behavior in NFL history - for stomping on Cowboys center Andre Gurode's bare head and kicking him in the face Sunday.
The league said Monday that Haynesworth was suspended for flagrant unnecessary roughness. The suspension, without pay, is effective immediately. Haynesworth can return Nov. 19 for Tennessee's game at Philadelphia.
Haynesworth was penalized and ejected early in the third quarter after he stomped on Gurode's head, causing his helmet to pop off, then stepped on him again after a 5-yard touchdown run by Dallas' Julius Jones. Gurode received stitches above his forehead and beneath his eye and didn't return to the game.
"What I did out there was disgusting," Haynesworth said Sunday. "It doesn't matter what the league does to me. The way I feel right now, you just can't describe it."
The incident could bring criminal charges and a civil lawsuit. Nashville police and the district attorney contacted the Cowboys' general counsel, offering their assistance to Gurode in prosecuting Haynesworth. The Cowboys declined to comment on the suspension.
"In all my years of football, this has never happened to me," Gurode said. "I've never been kicked in the face like this, and I've never seen anybody kick nobody else in the face."
COLTS: Coach Tony Dungy said the team plans to send a small group to today's funeral for the brother of Reggie Wayne. Among those expected to attend the service in Louisiana are quarterback Peyton Manning, Wayne's fellow receivers, Dungy and a few others. Rashad Wayne, Reggie's older brother, died Sept. 24 when the delivery truck he was driving crashed into a highway guardrail in Kenner, La. He was 32.
