Tuesday July 5 Update> The CFL has suspended Carter one game for his actions below.

Duron Carter, a former Ohio State receiver and son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Cris Carter, is holding on to the last vestiges of his football career as a member of the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes. But that task just became much more difficult.

As you'll see in the full video below, Carter snagged a 10-yard touchdown catch and, in his extended celebration, floated to the Ottawa Redblacks' bench, knocked over Ottawa head coach Rick Campbell, continued through the entire Redblacks' bench and eventually worked his way nearly to the opposite end zone.

Carter was tossed from the game and later apologized Campbell after the game. But, unlike his father, who was cut from the Eagles for mercurial behavior before crafting a Hall of Fame career with the Vikings, it's likely these 29 seconds will end his NFL comeback before it starts.

Ottawa won the game, 28-13.
