Ravens SS Bernard Pollard Not Fined For Illegal Hit On Reggie Wayne
Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard avoided punishment from the NFL following his illegal hit on Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne and a subsequent taunting penalty.
League spokesman Corry Rush said Pollard isn't being fined.
Pollard had been bracing for a fine. He complained earlier this week about the NFL fine system, openly questioning its validity.
On the play, Pollard struck Wayne in his facemask, delivering a glancing blow with his helmet.
"You just got to get the strike zone down," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said earlier this week. "What's happening is you take the strike zone down to this low chest area and you think you're going to be legal and all of a sudden the helmet's in that area. So, the only answer is to go lower and that's what we're going to have to do."
