San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson insists his fight with Arizona wide receiver Early Doucet was a one-time transgression and said he addressed his teammates and coaches after Sunday’s 23-7 win over the Cardinals regarding the mistake.

At the end of a play early in the fourth quarter, Goldson was down away from the ball when he got blindsided and slapped on the back of the helmet by Doucet.

Goldson jumped up, confronted him and both began swinging wildly. Goldson then threw a series of punches to Doucet’s facemask and received a 15-yard personal foul penalty before being ejected.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says the league doesn’t plan to suspend Goldson, who will get word on a potential fine when they are handed down Friday.
