There were no major injuries from illegal hits last week, but that doesn’t make said hits any less illegal. Thus, James Harrison was not the only player who drew a fine after Week 8. Sorting through the various tweets that have been rolling out this Friday afternoon, here are other players who received a letter from the NFL, requesting (demanding) a charitable donation:

Jason Babin, DE, Titans $20,000 (hit on Philip Rivers; repeat offender)

Manny Lawson, LB, 49ers $12,500 (hit on Kyle Orton; repeat offender)

Ahmad Brooks, LB, 49ers $10,000 (hit on Kyle Orton; repeat offender)

Chris Clemons, DE, Seahawks $7,500 (unnecessary late hit on Jason Campbell; repeat offender)

Gary Guyton, LB, Patriots $7,500 (hit on Favre)

Myron Pryor, DL, Patriots $7,500 (hit on Favre – the chin shot)

Some of these hits were flagged, some weren’t. Obviously, the NFL didn’t feel any were as egregious as the one Ernie Sims ($50,000 fine) laid on Lavelle Hawkins in Week 7. But the point is becoming clearer and clearer: the NFL is serious about cleaning up the illegal hits.
