Former Ohio State WR Duron Carter suspended 1 game by CFL following outrageous TD celebration
Former Ohio State wide receiver Duron Carter was suspended one game by the Canadian Football League for his role in an excessive touchdown celebration that prompted a sideline skirmish during a game between Carter’s Montreal Alouettes and the Ottawa Redblacks, according to CBC Sports.
Carter took celebrating to a new level during Friday night’s game when he stomped off the field following his touchdown reception. He stormed straight toward Ottawa’s sideline and bowled over an Ottawa coach along the way. This provoked a convoy of Redblacks to follow Carter down the sideline while seeking retribution.
The former Buckeyes wideout and son of legendary NFL wide receiver Cris Carter is in his third season with Montreal. He’s caught 11 passes for 132 yards and one touchdown in two games this season. Carter will miss Montreal’s July 15 tilt against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Carter was forced out of Ohio State due to academics in 2010 before transferring to Coffeyville Community College (Kansas). He attempted to transfer to Florida Atlantic, but was ultimately denied a scholarship waiver and opted to go pro. Carter landed in Montreal after going undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft. He earned a shot with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015, but wasn’t able to make the 53-man roster.
