Saints' Bunkley won't face suspension

NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley, ejected from a game for unsportsmanlike conduct, will not face a suspension.

Bunkley kicked San Francisco 49ers guard Alex Boone in the back of Boone's helmet during the Saints' 31-21 loss Sunday, and was penalized and immediately ejected.

Although Bunkley does not face suspension from future games he may still be fined by the league, a source told The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune.

"One of the keys to this game is keeping your poise. He's got to keep his emotions under control and do the right thing. He practices hard, wants to win. We have great confidence in the player, but he's got to keep his poise," New Orleans interim Coach Joe Vitt said of Bunkley after the game.
