Report: NFL Upholds S Dashon Goldson Suspension


Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that the NFL has upheld the one-game suspension for Buccaneers S Dashon Goldson following another illegal hit.

  • Goldson will miss Week 12’s game against the Detroit Lions.


Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the NFL has suspended Buccaneers S Dashon Goldson for another illegal hit.

  • Adam Schefter reports that Goldson is once again appealing his suspension.

This time, Goldson had a helmet-to-helmet hit on Falcons WR Roddy White.

Goldson was initially suspended for hit back in Week 4 on Cardinals WR Jaron Brownbut the league later overturned his suspension. Goldson had another suspension overturned this season following a hit on Saints RB Darren Sproles in Week 2, so there’s very little chance that the league will overturn this suspension.

Goldson has received numerous fines for helmet-to-helmet throughout his career, which means he’ll likely receive a fine as well.

We’ll have more as the news is available.
