FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -New York Jets safety Eric Smith has appealed his one-game suspension and $50,000 fine by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit last week on Arizona receiver Anquan Boldin.
Coach Eric Mangini said Smith was going through the appeal process Monday and a ruling was expected later in the day or Tuesday.
The league suspended Smith last Monday for committing a flagrant violation of player safety rules in New York's 56-35 win Sept. 28. In a statement, the NFL said Boldin was in a defenseless position when contact was made.
