Los Angeles Chargers’ Derwin James Jr. is avoiding a suspension from the NFL after Ashton Dulin was hit helmet-to-helmet by Colts – but both players will miss Sunday’s NFL games with concussions
Los Angeles Chargers safety Derwin James Jr. has avoided a suspension after he was ejected for a thunderous helmet-to-helmet shot on Monday Night Football.
As always, James flew across the football field in the Chargers’ 20-3 win over Indianapolis.
Known for his punching power, as Travis Kelce discovered earlier this season, James put the wood on Colts wideout Ashton Dulin in the second quarter, resulting in their eventual elimination from the game.
The 26-year-old was checked on the side in the team’s medical tent before being escorted to the dressing room, visibly upset, and after the game head coach Brandon Staley announced James had been placed on record with a concussion.
Derwin James Jr. has avoided a suspension from the NFL but will miss Sunday’s Chargers game
According to ESPN, the NFL considered keeping James out of upcoming games. He will miss Sunday’s Chargers all-LA game against the Rams with a concussion.
A fine is currently not excluded. Each week, the league reviews games and votes for unnecessary rudeness with personal foul on the field.
Dulin was ruled out of the rest of the game after going to the dressing room after scoring in the second quarter. He will also miss the Colts’ trip to New York to face the seemingly playoff-bound Giants.
James was ejected Monday night for an illegal hit on Indianapolis wide receiver Ashton Dulin
Earlier this year, James was called to the Pro Bowl for the third time in his five-year professional career.
James was drafted by the Chargers with the 17th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft from Florida State.
The Chargers have already secured a berth in the playoffs and are sixth in the AFC. If the tables don’t change over the past two weeks, No. 6 LAC would travel to No. 3 Cincinnati.
