Panthers S Dante Wesley ejected

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Carolina safety Dante Wesley was ejected late in the first half of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay when he launched himself into Buccaneers punt returner Clifton Smith, who had signaled for a fair catch.

The hit with 10 seconds left in the second quarter brought players from both teams off the sidelines. No penalties resulted from the pushing and shoving between the NFC South rivals.
Smith remained on the ground for a few minutes, then was helped to his feet and walked off the field.

Wesley appeared to leave his feet and hit Smith in the upper body with his left shoulder. The Panthers were penalized 15 yards.

The Bucs said at halftime that Smith had a concussion and would miss the remainder of the game.

A dangerous and unecessary cheapshot. he deserves fine / suspension. The league should protect all these guys, not just Tom Brady.

I'm looking forward to seeing Shockey interact with him.

"He called and apologize, and I appreciate it," Smith said of Wesley. "He explained just like he had it in the paper, he was just trying to make a play. It's understandable. He apologized and I accepted his apology and appreciated it. I'll see him again."

I believe it. These guys are young and full O' pee pee & vinegar, and you get all worked up, and next thing, you're doing something crazy. Sounds like my childhood. He still should face disciplinary action, but I'd be ok with him. And I still look forward to his interaction with Mr. Shockey.
