Vikings LB Chad Greenway Fined $21,000 For Hit On Lions WR Calvin Johnson
Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway was fined $21,000 by the NFL for his on Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson this past Sunday. He is being penalized for unnecessary roughness and striking an opponent in the head and neck area.
During Detroit's touchdown drive in the fourth quarter of a recent 20-13 loss to Minnesota, quarterback Matthew Stafford attempted a pass across the middle of the field. The pass sailed over the receiver's head, but Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway still rocked Johnson with a punishing hit.
The blow sent Johnson to the turf, where he stayed until he was helped off the field by team trainers.
