Da’Norris Searcy fined $21,000 for hit on Kevin Boss

AP

Fine Friday is not so fine for an up-and-coming member of the Buffalo Bills defense.

The involuntary contributions that will be made to the NFL’s charities this week include a $21,000 lump sum from safety Da’Norris Searcy.

The league office advised PFT earlier today that Searcy was fined for applying an illegal hit to Chiefs tight end Kevin Boss.

Boss left the game with a concussion, and he’ll miss Sunday’s game at New Orleans with that injury.

  1. Been a chiefs fan since mid 80’s let me tell all u bills fans one thing about that hit….. clean and perfect! Led with his shoulder is this not football. When did it become a game for wimps? Let them play… also check out the audacity of the nil when they warned the teams about ” bullying” the refs…. if they (nfl) had integrity they would never of allowed these monstrosities they call replacement refs to be in the game to begin with

  2. That was probably the cleanest hit ever. In fact, it was so clean that it took 10 minutes to get Boss off the field and then the Refs thew a flag for it because of the crowd. This fine, along with these refs, really need to go.

  3. Kevin Boss was clearly going to the ground. The Defensive Back was trying to put a knock blow on him, when all the had to do was touch him when he was down. He should be fined. His head might have hit the turf, but it was the players hit that caused the concussion. Just look at the picture. I was a BS hit trying to level a player who was obviously defenseless and obviously falling to the ground.

  4. WOW! I agree with a lot of fines for hits, but this one is WAY out of bounds! Not even close. This is totally a function of the result, as opposed to the action. Boss’s head was in an awkward position on the ground and Searcy CLEARLY tried to hold up but just rolled up on his head awkwardly. It wasn’t even a hard hit or a defenseless receiver. As I recall, he wasn’t even down yet. He hadn’t been touched. So the play was still live.

    Totally and completely ridiculous. The officials should have never thrown the flag, and this DEFINITELY shouldn’t get a fine. Absurd!

  5. Boss has a concussion because he’s now concussion prone. He shouldn’t be playing anymore, truth be told.

    Too many concussions.

  6. I really don’t want to say it, but I’m seriously considering dumping the NFL and just following NCAA football. The NFL is becomming too much of a joke, what with the spygate evidance getting destroyed and this fine BS. Football ain’t what it used to be…
