Virginia offensive lineman Brad Butler was suspended for one game by the school for throwing a chop-block in Saturday's loss to Boston College.

Butler will sit out Saturday's game against Florida State, the university said in a statement Monday.

The play came after the whistle in the third quarter of the Eagles' 28-17 win over Virginia on Saturday. Boston College's Mathias Kiwanuka, who was the Big East defensive player of the year last season, already was smarting from a sore ankle when Butler hit him in the back of the knees.

As he should be, I saw part of that game and he should miss more than 1 game IMO. It was one of the worst blocks I have ever seen.

Good to see the school stepping up. That was just absolutely horrible.
