Incognito, Smith still can't get along

August, 20, 2013
Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito and Houston Texans defensive lineman Antonio Smith have a history -- and it's not a good one. The pair can't seem to get along, mostly because Smith believes Incognito is a dirty player from their previous battles in the trenches.

That explains Smith's extreme overreaction in Saturday night's preseason game that was caught on tape. The video shows Smith ripping off Incognito's helmet after a block and violently swinging it towards Incognito. The helmet barely missed Incognito head and could've caused an injury.

This does not mean much for the Dolphins and Incognito. But it could lead to a possible suspension for Smith, who is one of Houston's top defensive players.

The Texans are not on Miami’s regular-season schedule this year and that's probably a good thing. It's best that Smith and Incognito stay as far away from each other as possible.
