CFL Announces Punishment For Duron Carter, Coach He Knocked Over

The Canadian Football League announced on Monday that Duron Carter has been suspended one game and the head coach he knocked over has been fined. 

Carter, who first played collegiately at Ohio State before leaving, making a couple of other stops and eventually ending up in the CFL, knocked over Ottawa Redblacks' head coach Rick Campbell after scoring a touchdown during a game last week. 

The son of NFL Hall of Fame wideout Cris Carter made a spectacular catch in the end zone and proceeded to celebrate near the Redblacks' bench. While walking past Ottawa's sideline, he walked through - and over - Campbell. 

Here's video of the incident.

From the Canadian Press:

The CFL has suspended Montreal Alouettes receiver Duron Carter one game for his part in a wild melee in a game on Friday against the Ottawa Redblacks.


Campbell was also fined after the league determined he didn't do enough to avoid contact with Carter.

Carter was also fined by his team, the Montreal Alouettes. A Redblacks' cornerback was also fined for punching an opponent.
