NFL suspends ref Ellison for words


The NFL has suspended a game official for one game without pay for making “a profane and derogatory statement” to Redskins tackle Trent Williams.

Williams said he was called vulgar names by Roy Ellison during a drive in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Williams said he has since heard from other players in the NFL that have had “the same experience” with Ellison.
