Joe Mays gets one game suspension for hit on Matt Schaub

Joe Mays made highlight reels across the nation this past weekend for a hard hit on Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. The helmet-to-helmet collision was powerful enough to pop the helmet off of Schaub's head, causing a bloody injury to his earlobe in the process.

The NFL has seen to it that Mays won't be able to deliver another hit like it this week, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter.


CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora has more information on Mays' appeal of the NFL's decision - based mainly on the linebacker's relatively clean background in the league.
