Bucs’ Dashon Goldson suspended one game without pay


Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson has been suspended for one game without pay for his helmet-to-helmet hit against New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles. It was his second helmet-to-helmet hit in as many games this season, last week he knocked out New York Jets wide receiver Jeff Cumberland with a helmet-to-helmet hit.

He was fined $30,000 for that hit in week one. Goldson is also looking to appeal his suspension and trying to expedite the process.

Since 2010, Goldson leads the league in personal fouls with 15, including multiple helmet-to-helmet hits.
