Defensive end Antonio Smith has been suspended by the NFL for not only the final two games of the preseason for the Houston Texans, but also for the team's regular-season opener against the San Diego Chargers.

Smith has apparently decided to appeal the suspension, which stemmed from him ripping off the helmet of Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito and swinging it at him.

Last year, Smith was fined $21,000 for an incident with Incognito in a regular-season game,a penalty that was reduced to $11,000 later on appeal.
