Report: Ref placed on administrative leave after incident with Bills’ Hughes

Warning: Video contains coarse language

The referee involved in a postgame spat with Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes has been placed on administrative leave, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who added that the NFL is still reviewing the matter.

Game official Roy Ellison and Hughes got into a heated exchange following the Bills' loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

In a video of the interaction, Hughes can be heard shouting, "you called me a b----. I'll catch you. Trust me, I'll catch you. I'll catch you, guarantee it!"

Ellison was suspended for an incident with Trent Williams of the Washington Redskins in 2013, according to Rapoport.
