NFL Suspends Bears’ Javon Wims Two Games For Punching Saints’ C.J. Gardner-Johnson

The wideout lost his cool Sunday


What seemed inevitable now is official.

The NFL suspended Chicago Bears receiver Javon Wims two games without pay for his unsportsmanlike conduct displayed Sunday in a Week 8 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

And unsportsmanlike conduct is an understatement.

During the third quarter of Chicago’s loss, Wims got off his route on the first play of a new Bears drive and approached Saints safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, who was not covering him, and punched him in the helmet twice.

After reviewing the game film, it appears the altercation was motivated after the prior play when Gardner-Johnson ripped out Wims’ mouth guard and threw it to the ground.

It was quite the scene, and despite the fact that the Saints defensive back said Wims punches “like a female,” the Bears wideout still will face discipline from the league.

According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, Wims will appeal his suspension.

We’ll see how that goes for him.
