The New England Patriots running back was ejected after an altercation with a teammate, who punched him in the face, according to multiple reports.
The New York Post reported Sunday night that the team’s medical staff determined that the incident occurred Sunday in the fourth quarter of a 31-23 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
The league issued a statement Sunday night saying that the Patriots “are aware of the report” and “have reached out to the player.”
A source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the player was “not charged and has accepted a suspension.”
The league added that the “disciplinary action against the player has not been determined.”
In the locker room, the Patriots coach, Bill Belichick, and general manager Mickey Loomis did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
The NFL’s statement also said the team will conduct an investigation and “assess its future steps to ensure the safety of our players and fans.”
The Patriots, who were 1-1 at the time of the incident, are 2-1 since winning their first game in six weeks.
The Patriots lost their first four games of the season before their season ended with a 21-13 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
