Colts LB Walden, Bucs S Goldson suspended by NFL
NEW YORK (AP)
NFL Vice President of Football Operations Merton Hanks announced the punishments Monday.
Walden was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct but not ejected from the Tennessee game.
Goldson 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. He was fined $30,000 for hitting a defenseless player in the head and neck area in Week 1, then was initially suspended for a game for a helmet-to-helmet hit in Week 2. That ban was changed to a $100,000 fine on appeal.
Both players have the right to appeal and are expected to do so.
