PHOENIX, Az. -- It has been a rocky couple a weeks for the NFL and just when you thought the madness couldn't get any worse, it does.
Arizona Cardinals running back, Jonathan Dwyer, was benched after he was arrested for assault charges.
Phoenix police say the charges come from two different incidents that allegedly happened at his home back in July.
The incidents involved a 27-year-old woman and an 18 month old baby.
As a result, he has been deactivated from all team activities.
This, on the heels of Carolina defensive end Greg Hardy being removed from the Panthers' active roster until his domestic violence case is settled.
Hardy was convicted in July of assault on a female and communicating threats after officials say he choked his then-girlfriend, tossed her around and threatened to kill her.
He's appealing the ruling and his trial is scheduled for November 17.
But here's a real kicker: he'll still take home his weekly pay of $770,588.23.
Way to stick it to him.
