Odell Beckham Jr.'s inability to control his emotions during the Giants' loss to the Panthers on Sunday will keep him off the field for the Vikings-Giants game on Sunday Night Football this week.

The NFL on Monday levied a one-game suspension against Beckham following his series of outbursts against Carolina. He flagged for three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, one after he launched himself into Carolina cornerback Josh Norman for an intentional helmet-to-helmet hit.

“The guy ran 15 yards down the field — a dead on collision,” Norman said after the game, via the New York Daily News. “The play was all the way on the left side. He came back and was hunting. It was malicious in every way. I hope the league offices get a chance to review the film and see what they can do, because players like that don’t deserve to be in the game. I mean it’s ridiculous.”

Beckham can appeal the suspension and continue playing until his appeal is heard, ESPN notes, although it's likely that his appeal would be heard prior to Sunday's game.
