Cincinnati Bengals Vs. Atlanta Falcons: Will Chad Ochocinco Get To Play Dunta Robinson After All?

Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco has been looking forward to meeting Falcons CB Dunta Robinson on Sunday.

But Robinson could be prevented from playing by one of two things: his concussion, suffered Sunday against the Eagles, or a possible suspension for what the NFL may perceive as a disallowed hit.

NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson said today that the league may start suspending players for helmet-to-helmet hits, ratcheting up the punishment for what used to only be a fineable offense. Anderson didn’t comment on Robinson’s hit in particular.

Robinson will need a doctor’s note clearing him to play, but that won’t mean a thing if the NFL starts naming names.
