Posted February 14, 2019 12:18:13The National Football League (NFL) announced Thursday it is suspending the suspension of Ray McDonald for the first two games of the season for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy.
The suspension stems from McDonald’s altercation with Denver Broncos defensive tackle Tyrell Crosby during a game at Denver’s Prudential Center in late January.
McDonald, who is also a member of the Baltimore Ravens, has been suspended for the last three games of this season for his role in a separate incident that occurred during a Broncos-Bears game in Philadelphia in January.
The incident involved an altercation between McDonald and Crosby that led to the Broncos’ quarterback being restrained by Crosby for several minutes before being transported to the hospital.
The Broncos have suspended Crosby for the remaining four games of his season for violation of the league policy.
The league said that the suspension would be effective on Friday.
The suspension would end at midnight ET.
