NFL bans Mays one game for Schaub hit

According to Adam Schefter, the hit by Broncos linebacker Joe Mays on Matt Schaub during Sunday's loss to the Texans has landed Mays a one-game suspension from the league.

Mays, who will appeal the ruling, has been effusively and repeatedly apologetic for the blow, which cost Schaub a significant chunk of his left earlobe.

The fifth-year player had earlier been penalized $7,875 for a Week 2 hit on Falcons QB Matt Ryan.

Lindsay Jones expects that if Mays does miss Sunday's game against Oakland, both Wesley Woodyard and Keith Brooking will see more action. She says the team will likely be without Nate Irving, who suffered a concussion against Houston.

Does Joe Mays deserve to be suspended for his hit against Texans QB Matt Schaub?
