Arizona Cardinals safety Antrel Rolle was fined $7,500 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss late in Sunday night’s Giants-Cardinals game.
Although Rolle wasn’t flagged, he was fined for “unnecessarily striking a defenseless receiver.” Boss made a great play and didn’t drop the ball despite the brutal hit from Rolle. Surprisingly, Boss did not suffer a concussion and is not on this week’s injury report.
Other players fined after the hard-hitting Giants-Cardinals game include Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, Giants safety Michael Johnson and Cardinals tackle Levi Brown.
Bradshaw was fined $5,000 for hitting Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett in the facemask, a hit that drew a flag for personal foul and a tweet from Dockett comparing Bradshaw to Glass Joe.
Johnson was fined $5,000 for hitting Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner in the head. Brown was fined $5,000 for a chop block.
