We learned earlier on Monday that Indianapolis Colts linebacker Erik Walden would be suspended by the NFL for his head butt of Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker. When the league sent out the press release to announce the move, it contained a surprise. Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson was also suspended for a helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless receiver, Falcons wideout Roddy White. The suspensions were imposed by NFL Vice President of Football Operations Merton Hanks. If the story sounds familiar, Goldson was also suspended after a similar Week 2 infraction. That suspension was subsequently reduced on appeal to a $100,000 fine by hearing officer Matt Birk. This was Goldson's third infraction of the season. He will not be able to practice this week or play on Sunday against Detroit.
