Smith won't be punished further for his shove of an official that drew a 15-yard penalty and automatic ejection from Sunday's game against Tennessee.||||||| Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said Monday the team was told by the NFL that Smith won't be fined or suspended. The rookie was pulled away from a tussle with some Titans players by back judge Steve Freeman in the second quarter, when he pushed Freeman aside.

Smith was ejected from the game against Tennessee after pushing an official who was trying to break up an on-field altercation.||||||| Several Titans and Vikings tangled in the second quarter after Minnesota's Antoine Winfield intercepted a pass from Matt Hasselbeck. The hard-nosed Smith was right in the middle of the confrontation, and an official stepped in to try to steer him out of the area.

Rookie Robert Blanton replaced Smith at safety on the Vikings' next defensive series.
