TAMPA – Just two games into his career and already Elbert Mack has a reputation for being a dirty player.
Mack, the Bucs rookie cornerback, was suspended for this Sunday’s game against the Bears on Tuesday after he was cited for a second violation of the NFL’s player safety rules.
Mack’s latest infraction, according to the league, occurred when he “unnecessarily launched himself into Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and made impermissible helmet-to-helmet contact.’’
Mack’s first violation came during the Bucs preseason finale against the Houston Texans, when earned an unnecessary roughness call for hitting Texans quarterback Alex Brink.
Mack was fined $5,000 for the first violation. His second violation will cost him a game check.
