After an incident that resulted in Texans’ defensive end Antonio Smith swinging a helmet at Dolphins’ offensive lineman Richie Incognito, there was much speculation as to what action the league would take regarding possible consequences.

Today, it was learned today that Smith has been reportedly suspended [2] for the remainder of the preseason, as well as week one of the regular season.

After the Dolphins’ practice on Tuesday, Incognito addressed the incident [3] and appeared ready to move on.

“Football is an intense game, it’s played with a lot of passion,” Incognito said. “Blood runs hot—I’ve been there. You know I’m no choir boy. People lost their cool, and just thank God no one got hurt.

“I’m moving past and moving onto the Tampa Bay game.”

Incognito added that he kept his cool because he had his teammates in mind.

“It’s been a work in progress for me,” he said. “It’s something I’ve been working on for many years now. And I have too much respect for my teammates and too much respect for the hard work that we’ve put in to retaliate and affect this team negatively.”
