Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith is expected to be suspended for as many as two preaseason games for stripping off Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito's helmet and smashing him in the face in a violent act, according to ESPN.
Incognito got his helmet ripped off by Smith while blocking him Saturday night before being hit flush in the face with his own helmet.
Smith and Incognito have history, none of it good. Smith got fined $21,000 for kicking Incognito last season, but it was reduced to $11,000 upon appeal when Smith said he was reacting to having his right ankle twisted intentionally by Incognito.
Smith was in no mood to discuss the incident.
“Next question,” Smith said after the game. “I kind of took a blow to the head. I can't remember.”
