No final decision has been made on punishment for Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith after he swung a helmet at Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, but Smith will be suspended for at least the team's two remaining preseason games and one regular-season game, according to FOX Sports NFL Insider Jay Glazer.

Additional punishment for Smith is possible, sources told Glazer.

The incident Saturday occurred during the second quarter when Incognito was trying to block Smith. Incognito appeared to grab the face mask of Smith, who responded by ripping off Incognito's helmet and swinging it at the lineman.

Smith declined to talk about the incident, telling reporters after the game that he "took a blow to the head. I can't remember."

ESPN was first to report Smith's suspension as well as an undisclosed fine for the defensive end.

Smith was fined $21,000 last season for kicking Incognito, a penalty that was reduced to $11,000 after Smith appealed, saying his actions were retaliation for Incognito intentionally twisting his right ankle.
