Kamerion Wimbley fined $15,000 for roughing Philip Rivers

Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley roughed Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers on Sunday, and now he’s paying for it.

The NFL fined Wimbley $15,000 for hitting Rivers after he passed, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. Wimbley told Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com that he won’t appeal the fine.

Wimbley’s roughing penalty was costly for the Titans on Sunday: It came on a third-and-10 on which Rivers had thrown an incompletion in Chargers territory, and San Diego would have punted if not for the penalty. Instead, the Chargers got a first down on the penalty and ended the drive with a field goal.

    If you listen to Rivers mic’ed up he says “Thank you, thanks a lot Wimbley” after he hits him late. Classic Rivers.

    You can take the player out of the raiduhs, but you can’t take the raiduh out of the player.

    What do u expect he was a Raider, where the most hostile players have the most hostile fans.

    Well, at least he is getting fined for it. This is not Oakland buddy where dirty play is smiled upon. You actually have to play safe and smart football.

    I love how charger fans are obsessed with the RAIDERS.

    Keep yearning for your first SB and cherishing those regular season wins.

    Hey posters…..

    You have no clue about Wimbley. He is a complete class act….he was not being dirty at all, just aggressive and got there late.

    Spent the largest part of his career with the Browns. Great guy, great teammate, class player.

    Charger fan is all puffed up about that 2-0 record. The Jets started 2-0 last season. It’s different for you guys, but it’s not special.

    Yet, John Wendling has yet to be fined. unbelievable.

    These fines are getting ridiculous. The flag should have been enough. He didn’t lead with his head. He didn’t go for the knees. Clean hit, albeit late. Penalty or fine, not both.
