NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL has handed down one-game suspensions to Colts linebacker Erik Walden and Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson.

Walden pulled off the helmet of Titans tight end Delanie Walker, then slammed his own helmet into Walker’s head during Indianapolis’ game against Tennessee on Thursday.

Goldson was penalized for unnecessary roughness for his hit on a defenseless receiver on Sunday, his third such violation.
