The NFL today suspended Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for one game. Beckham’s behavior in Sunday’s game against the Panthers has been under much scrutiny, particularly for launching at the head of Panthers defensive back Josh Norman.
In a press conference Monday, Panthers coach Ron Rivera wouldn’t enter the debate over appropriate punishment. He simply said it’s up to the NFL.
Meanwhile, Rivera indicated his philosophy in the debate over whether to rest key players to avoid injury heading into the playoffs.
