Portsmouth midfielder Richard Hughes has been banned for three matches for a deliberate headbutt.
The Scotland international clashed with David Howland in Pompey reserves' 1-0 victory over Birmingham on Wednesday evening.
Due to the violent nature of the offence, however, Hughes' suspension will cover first-team matches.
Hughes has only made one Premier League start this season but has played a full part in Portsmouth's Carling Cup wins over Leeds and Burnley.
He will not be available for the fourth round clash against Blackburn at the end of the month, or the league games with West Ham and Newcastle.
A Football Association spokesman confirmed: "The player will be suspended for three matches from October 24 for a deliberate headbutt."
Taylor was on the receiving end of a Cristiano Ronaldo headbutt when Manchester United drew 1-1 at Fratton Park in August.
