The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t have to worry about their star safety’s status for their game against New England on Sunday.
Ian Rapoport reported early Wednesday that Dashon Goldson’s one-game suspension has been overturned, according to an NFL source.
The all-pro was facing suspension for a hit he laid on Saints scat back Darren Sproles during the team’s loss to New Orleans.
Although he avoided missing a game, Rapoport reports that Goldson will still pay a massive fine of $100,000 for the hit.
