Antonio Smith ripped off Richie Incognito’s helmet, hit him with it (Video)

Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith could be facing a suspension from the league after ripping off Richie Incognito’s helmet during a preseason game on Saturday and hitting the Miami Dolphins lineman in the head with it.

Antonio Smith Richie IncognitoA video obtained by FOX NFL reporter Jay Glazer shown on the premier of “FOX Football Daily” Monday showed Smith and Incognito going head-to-head on a play. Smith got frustrated while rushing the passer — possibly because of Incognito’s hands to the face — and he ripped off Incognito’s helmet and hit the lineman in the chin with it.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin sent the video to the league for review.

NFL officials/rules guru Mike Pereira believes the league could suspend Smith because he committed a “non-football act.”

Smith and Incognito have a history. Last year, Smith accused Incognito of playing dirty in their September game. Smith was fined $21,000 last year for kicking Incognito while he was on the ground. He had the fine reduced to $11,000 on appeal.
