NEW YORK (AP) -- New England midfielder Shalrie Joseph has been suspended for one game and fined for what Major League Soccer called a "reckless challenge that endangered the safety of his opponent."

Joseph was penalized Tuesday for his scissors tackle from behind of Dallas' Ricardo Villar last Thursday.

He will miss New England's game against D.C. United on Saturday.
