Players Fined for Hits 9/19/13
The NFL has fined Titans safety Bernard Pollard $42,000 for his hit on Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson Sunday. The NFL says Pollard was fined for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head or neck area with his shoulder.
The league has lifted Tampa Bay safety Dashon Goldson's suspension and fined him $100,000 instead for his hit on Darren Sproles of New Orleans. Goldson had been suspended one game without pay for flagrant and repeat violations of NFL safety rules prohibiting hits to the head and neck area of defenseless players. He will now be allowed to play Sunday against New England.
