Vince Wilfork To Get Suspended ?

Posted by Mike on October 27, 2008

New England Patriots nose tackle, Vince Wilfork could find himself missing a game in the near future. According to Adam Schefter, (via Pro Football Talk) Wilfork took a cheap shot last Monday night at Denver Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler. The hit was not caught by ESPN, but it was seen on the coach’s video, and the league is currently deciding what to do with Wilfork. The Patriots nose tackle had start to be known around the league as a dirty player after taking a shot at Buffalo Bills quarterback J.P. Losman leg, and poking the eye of New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs. More from Pro Football Talk:

Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that the league could decide to suspend Wilfork for his latest cheap shot, an elbow to Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler’s head after a play was over. The hit wasn’t caught by the TV cameras, but NFL Network showed it on the coaches’ tape, and it was blatant.

NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp called Wilfork’s hit, “Cheap, cheap cheap. That’s all that is, is cheap.” Marshall Faulk added, “I’m surprised that Vince would even stoop that low in the game, to try to take out the quarterback, who wasn’t even near the ball.”

Wilfork has said in the past that he doesn’t care that he’s known as a dirty player. Maybe a suspension will make him care.
