The Buffalo Bills have dropped the hammer on their offensive line coach, Aaron Kromer.

The Bills suspended him without pay for the first six games of the 2015 NFL season Sunday for violating the league's personal conduct policy for allegedly to have punched a boy in the face and threatening to kill his family in an argument over beach chairs last month.

"The suspension will begin on Monday, September 7, 2015, and end with the conclusion of the Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals game on October 18, 2015," Bills president Russ Brandon said in a statement Sunday night to ESPN. "We worked in conjunction with the NFL on this matter and we are highly supportive of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy that holds all NFL club employees to a higher standard." 


Kromer is eligible to return to the team during the Bills' Week 7 match up against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

Last week, Kromer and his son, Zachery, had battery charges against them dropped, stemming from the July 11 altercation and punching incident.
