Farrior Gets Nailed for $15,000 For Hit on Collins Sunday Night

Steelers linebacker James Farrior was fined $15,000 by the NFL for a hit Sunday night on Indianapolis quarterback Kerry Collins.

Farrior hit Collins after he released the ball, but he was not penalized during the game. Collins later left the game with concussion symptoms and was replaced by backup Curtis Painter.

Farrior said he had been expecting to hear from the league, but thought he had escaped a fine when he didn’t receive any news by Thursday. Farrior was informed of the fine as he walked off the practice field this afternoon.

Farrior does not believe the hit warranted a fine.

“I don’t think so, but the league saw it necessary to put the fine out there, so we just have to go with it,” he said.

Farrior’s agent, Ralph Cindrich, said Farrior will appeal the fine.
