Cowboys DT Trysten Hills Postgame Switch Exclusion Cut to 1 Game – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

The Dallas Cowboys’ defensive tackle on Trysten Hill’s exclusion to beat Las Vegas offensive lineman John Simpson after a Thanksgiving Day loss to the Raiders has been reduced to one game.

The NFL suspended Hill two games due to the altercation, saying Hill waited nearly a minute to confront Simpson after Las Vegas’ 36-33 overtime victory. Hill struck off Simpson’s helmet with an open-handed blow.

NFL and players ‘union appellant Derrick Brooks heard Hills’ appeal Tuesday and ruled in favor of the third-year player. Hill will miss Thursday’s game in New Orleans, but will be eligible to play in Washington on December 12.

The league said the suspension was for violating rules regarding unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct, especially for contact with a player’s face, head or neck.

Hill had just played his best game of the season, leading the Dallas defensive linemen with five tackles against the Raiders.

Dallas’ top pick as a second-round pick in 2019, Hill has only played 15 games in three seasons. He missed the last 11 games in 2020 and the first eight games this year after tearing a knee ligament.
