The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have an important piece of their defense on the field to battle Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday.
Bucs safety Dashon Goldson had his one-game suspension overturned, NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday, according to a league source.
Goldson was suspended by the NFL for an illegal hit on New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles in Week 2.
Rapoport reported that Goldson will be fined $100,000 for the hit, equaling the record price tag Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was hit with for being a habitual violator of the NFL's safety rules.
