Matt Bosher committed a crime against a Panthers returner, so the NFL is investigating.
The Falcons punter completely ruined running back Kenjon Barner during Sunday’s game at Bank of America Stadium when he leveled him in the second quarter of Atlanta’s 24-10 victory.

The WWE-like tackle was so impressive, it prompted a random drug test for Bosher on Monday.
“Everyone was right…I did get called in for a drug test today,” Bosher confirmed in a post on Instagram.
Despite being destroyed by the hit, Barner had a sense of humor about the “disrespectful” slam down on Twitter.

Bosher’s jaw-dropping tackle prompted a wide reaction, including words of praise from Falcons coach Dan Quinn after the game.
“When the hit happened today, it was clearly one that got everybody excited,” Quinn said, via the team’s website. “Sometimes you catch them just right … He’ll have a highlight for himself for years to come.”
The Falcons (6-9) will finish out the regular season on the road against the Buccaneers (5-10) in Week 17 action.
