Smith's punishment stands after helmet-to-helmet hit on BoldinPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- The NFL has decided that the suspension and fine for New York Jets' safety Eric Smith stand.
Smith will sit out Sunday's game against Cincinnati and he will pay a $50,000 fine for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Arizona's Anquan Boldin on Sept. 28.
The league contends Smith committed a flagrant violation.
Boldin is out indefinitely after having surgery to repair a sinus fracture.
