It's been a rough week for Buffalo Bills fan Robert Hopkins.

On Sunday, the 29-year-old nearly fell to his death after tumbling over a handrail in the upper deck of Ralph Wilson Stadium, but he luckily managed to survive the fall with nothing more than a shoulder injury.

On Monday, Hopkins was banned for life from the stadium because of the incident. And on Tuesday, he was fired from his job as a digital art director at Eric Mower + Associates.

Here is the short statement released by the firm:

“Eric Mower + Associates is very concerned about Sunday’s incident and we were relieved that the injured were released from the hospital. Rob Hopkins is no longer employed by EMA.”

Again, is anybody else in Buffalo having a worst week than this guy?
