Antonio Smith Suspension To Come During Regular Season

Texans_Antonio_Smith_2013 [1]There was a report late on Monday that Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith would be suspended by the league for up to two preseason games as punishment for using a helmet as a weapon against Dolphins guard Richie Incognito.

For a veteran like Smith, a suspension that allows him to skip two preseason games sounds more like a prize than a punishment. That may explain why Ed Werder of ESPN is reporting that the league is considering whether to suspend Smith from one or more regular season games as a result of his actions. Smith is also expected to be fined.
