Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith’s preseason could be over after an incident with Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito during Saturday night’s preseason game between the two teams.
Smith forcibly removed Incognito’s helmet and then swung it at him connecting with Incognito’s face in the process. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, the league will suspend Smith Tuesday for up to two preseason games for using a helmet as a weapon.
It’s the second time in the last calendar year the duo of Smith and Incognito have had an incident on the field. Smith was fined $11,000 (after appealing the fine down from $21,000) for a Week One run-in when he kicked Incognito in the head after Incognito grabbed Smith’s ankle as he tried to chase a loose ball.
