Texans S Pollard fined $40,000
Pollard was fined for striking Gage in the head area Sunday when the Titans receiver was defenseless. The amount of the fine was so hefty because Pollard is a repeat offender; he was fined $5,000 earlier this season for a hit against Kansas City.
Teammate Clark Haggans, a linebacker, was docked $10,000 for unnecessary roughness on a third-quarter running play for striking an opponent in the head and neck area with his helmet.
Baltimore offensive tackle Michael Oher was fined $5,000 for violating the league's social media policy by tweeting during the team's win over Tampa Bay. He posted an update on his Twitter account about his sprained right knee.
