After Sunday’s loss to the Saints, some Titans players accused Roman Harper of playing dirty. Now the league office has weighed in.
Harper has been fined a total of $22,500 for two plays — a $15,000 fine for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and a $7,500 fine for facemasking Titans receiver Damian Williams.
Harper said he wasn’t trying to play dirty, but he added that he didn’t disagree with the officials throwing the flags on either play.
The fines are Harper’s second and third of the season; he was previously fined $15,000 for hitting Panthers receiver Steve Smith after Smith scored a touchdown.
