The NFL is expected to suspend Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith for up to two preseason games for using his helmet as a weapon against Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The suspension is expected to be announced Tuesday, according to the source.

The incident occurred during the second quarter of Saturday's preseason game when Incognito was attempting to block Smith.

Fox Sports 1 captured a video of the play, during which Incognito appeared to grab Smith's facemask. Smith retaliated by ripping Incognito's helmet off and swinging it at the veteran lineman.

It was not the first time that Smith and Incognito have been involved in a physical altercation during a game. Smith was fined $21,000 last season for kicking Incognito, a penalty that was reduced to $11,000 after Smith appealed, saying he was retaliating to Incognito's stepping on his right ankle.
