Watch: Bengals' Adam Jones rips Amari Cooper's helmet off after play
Sunday September 13th, 2015

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct Sunday afternoon after he violently slammed Amari Cooper’s head into his helmet.

As Jones laid on top of Cooper during the second quarter of Sunday’s game, he removed Cooper’s helmet and thrust his head down into it. Shortly after, a few of Cooper’s teammates rushed in to break up the scuffle.


Jones wasn’t ejected from the game for the move. He received a personal foul.

The incident occurred after a 60-yard run from Raiders fullback Jamize Olawale, which was wiped out due to offsetting penalties.
