Per wwl for hit to Sproles. 1 game. Hopefully more to come.

For the second straight week, Dashon Goldson was penalized for a helmet-to-helmet hit. And for the second straight week, the Bucs Pro Bowl safety says he doesn't intend to change anything about the way he plays the game.

Now the NFL may decide to keep Goldson from playing.

The league is deciding whether to suspend Goldson for his hit on Saints running back Darren Sproles Sunday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Re: Goldson suspended for hit on Sproles

NFL suspended Bucs S Dashon Goldson one game for his illegal helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless Darren Sproles in Sunday's Week 2 loss.

Goldson's suspension is the result of "a flagrant and repeat violation of rules prohibiting hits to the head and neck area." He was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the Sproles hit. The previous week, Goldson was fined $30,000 for committing a personal foul on Jets TE Jeff Cumberland. Goldson has 15 personal foul penalties since the start of the 2010 season. He'll likely appeal the suspension. As of now, Goldson is set to miss next week's game against the Patriots. Ahmad Black will likely get the start in his place. Goldson will be eligible to return in Week 4 against the Cardinals at home.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I think it was more than that hit - it is his history.

Come on brother.... A voraciously hard tackle is one thing.... A helmet spear to the head of a defenseless receiver is a completely different ball of wax.

This is the NFL, not RollerBall.
