NFL - The National Football League will immediately begin suspending players for dangerous and flagrant hits, particularly those involving helmets.
The NFL says the new disciplinary measures will be in place for this weekend's games.
In the past, players were either fined or ejected for illegal hits, but after a series of flagrant tackles last Sunday, the NFL ratcheted up the punishment.
