NEW YORK - Major League Soccer has suspended San Jose defender Victor Bernardez two games for violent conduct in a game on Saturday.

Bernardez made contact with his foot to the head of FC Dallas forward Kenny Cooper as both players fell while pursuing a ball out of bounds. Video of the collision shows Bernardez's cleat connecting with Cooper in the side of his face as both players fell. Cooper suffered a concussion and came out of the game.

The MLS disciplinary committee determined that Bernardez's act was "egregious" and unsafe. He was also assessed a fine of an undisclosed amount.

Bernardez will miss the Earthquakes' games Saturday at Real Salt Lake and June 15 at the Colorado Rapids.
