FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -New York Jets safety Eric Smith was suspended for one game by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
Smith was also fined $50,000 by the league for what it called a flagrant violation of player safety rules. In a statement, the NFL said Boldin was in a defenseless position at the time contact was made.
Boldin was resting at home Monday, one day after being carted off the field following the scary collision in the Cardinals' 56-35 loss to the Jets at the Meadowlands.
