Bucs’ Dashon Goldson May Be Banned For Hit

Bucs_Dashon_Goldson_2013The NFL is discussing whether to suspend Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson for his helmet-to-helmet hit Sunday on New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles, according to a league source.

The hit to Sproles came one week after he was fined $30,000 for hitting New York Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland in the Buccaneers’ Week 1 loss.

Goldson was flagged for his hit on Sproles just as he was for the hit on Cumberland in Week 1. The Buccaneers committed 10 penalties for 118 yards in their 16-14 loss to the Saints. Against the Jets, Tampa Bay had 13 penalties for 102 yards. Their 23 penalties for 220 yards is the worst in the NFL through two weeks.
