. NFL Vice-President of Football Operations Merton Hanks announced the punishments Monday. Walden pulled off the helmet of Titans tight end Delanie Walker, then slammed his own helmet into Walkers head during Indianapolis game against Tennessee on Thursday. It was similar to what Texans defensive end Antonio Smith did in the preseason to Miami guard Richie Incognito, earning Smith a one-game ban in the regular season and for two exhibition games. Walden was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct but not ejected from the Tennessee game. Goldson was penalized for unnecessary roughness for his hit on a defenceless receiver, Roddy White, against Atlanta on Sunday. It was Goldsons third such violation this season. He was fined $30,000 for hitting a defenceless 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. UPDATE: Both players appealed their suspensions and both were affirmed on Tuesday. Ladarius Green Steelers Jersey
