(AP) Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith has been suspended by the NFL for the season opener and the last two preseason games for hitting Miami guard Richie Incognito with the Dolphins player's helmet.


Smith ripped the helmet off Incognito's head, then hit Incognito on the shoulder with it in last Saturday night's preseason game. The two also went at it in last season's opener, when Smith kicked Incognito, drawing an $11,000 fine.


Smith must sit out Houston's visit to San Diego to begin the season Sept. 9. He also will lose about $400,000 in salary for his seventh rules violation since 2011.
