The NFL is expected to suspend Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith for up to two preseason games for using a helmet as a weapon against Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The suspension is expected to be announced Tuesday, according to the source.

The incident occurred during the second quarter of Saturday's preseason game when Incognito was attempting to block Smith. Incognito appeared to grab the face mask of Smith, who retaliated by ripping off Incognito's helmet and swinging it at the veteran lineman.

Smith declined to talk about the scuffle.

"Next question," he told reporters after the game. "I kind of took a blow to the head. I can't remember."

Based on what he's said about Incognito and his history of dirty play, that lineman deserved it. Note he gets punched in the helmet FIRST. I'm of the opinion that if the refs aren't going to protect you, you have to do whatever it takes to protect yourself. I guarantee it Incognito won't go up side his helmet again.

So removing your opponents helmet and trying to smash their face with it is okay with you? I'm sorry but that's bush league shit and has no business in professional sports. The guy needs counseling of the highest degree, and should be suspended for half the season.
