The Cleveland Browns have suspended kicker Michael Haney for one game and fined him $25,000 for punching a pregnant woman during an altercation on Sunday.
NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino announced Monday that Haney was suspended indefinitely for the first two games of the season.
The suspension ends Browns’ hopes for Haney to make the playoffs.
Haney’s suspension was announced on Sunday at a press conference.
Hickey is a three-time All-Pro and an NFL record holder for field goals made in a season with seven.
He has made three field goals in the playoffs in three of his four NFL seasons.
Henny’s actions do not reflect the values of the Cleveland Browns organization, Blandino said in a statement.
Browns quarterback Cody Kessler also was fined $25 on Monday.
Kessler is the team’s all-time leader in field goals attempted with 1,735.
Kessler was penalized for a false start penalty in the fourth quarter of a 31-24 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday and a hit on the helmet of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Mike Mitchell.
Browns cornerback Tramon Williams was fined a total of $25 for an illegal hit to the head of an opponent during the second half of a 26-24 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick was fined an additional $25.
The league has fined both Kessler and Kirkpatrick for illegal hits during the same game.
Huy, 28, was signed by the Browns in April as the team began the process of moving him to the active roster.
