Houston Texans DE Antonio Smith’s actions in the preseason game has cost him the chance to play on Monday Night Football to start out the year. He also will not be able to play for the rest of the preseason.

During the Texans preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, Smnith got tangled up with OT Richie Incognito. Smith ripped off Incognito’s helmet and swung it at his head.

At least we don’t have to deal with that problem on offense. We still have to deal with the monster that is J.J. Watt. The Texans defense is strong and will be a force to mess with. Our offense is still gelling, so we will take any breaks that we can get to start out the year.
