2 players suspended

Tue., Nov. 19, 2013

Colts linebacker Erik Walden’s head-butt and Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson’s helmet-to-helmet hit have earned one-game suspensions from the NFL. NFL vice president of football operations Merton Hanks announced the punishments Monday. Walden pulled off the helmet of Titans tight end Delanie Walker, then slammed his own helmet into Walker’s head during Indianapolis’ game against Tennessee on Thursday. Goldson (pictured) was penalized for unnecessary roughness for his hit on a defenseless receiver, Roddy White, against Atlanta on Sunday. It was Goldson’s third such violation this season.
