NFL Official on Leave, Accused of Calling Buffalo Bills Player Vulgar Name

The NFL has placed official Roy Ellison on administrative leave while it investigates an accusation that he called Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes a vulgar name during Sunday's game in Miami.  Hughes confronted Ellison in the tunnel near the locker room after Buffalo's 21-17 loss. The video shows him accusing the referee of using the derogatory term.  Ellison was suspended in 2013 for making a derogatory statement to Washington tackle Trent Williams during a game. Bills coach Sean McDermott on Monday said he was leaving the matter in the league's hands after saying he's spoken to both the NFL and Hughes.
