With Vontaze Burfict out, Richie Incognito predictably was the next Raider to be guilty of a dirty on-field act.
The Oakland Raiders offensive lineman, who notoriously bullied former Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin, was flagged Sunday for unnecessary roughness when he shoved Bears corner Buster Skrine’s head into the turf at the end of a play in London.
The penalty pushed the Raiders out of field-goal range and forced them to punt.
Incognito, 36, was suspended the first two games of the season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, stemming from a 2018 incident during which he allegedly threatened to shoot people at a funeral home where he was trying to make arrangements for his father. Incognito didn’t play in 2018.
This is the second time in eight days a Raiders player was penalized for a dirty play. Last Sunday, Vontaze Burfict was ejected after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Colts tight end Jack Doyle. Burfict was suspended for the rest of the season after the hit.
