Steelers CB William Gay fined $15,750 for hit on Browns QB Jason Campbell
The NFL fined Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay $15,750 for his hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell during last Sunday’s game, saying Gay “unnecessarily delivered a forcible blow to (Campbell’s) head and neck area.”
After Gay’s hit, Campbell’s head snapped to the side, and his helmet hit the turf hard. No flag was thrown on the play, which left Campbell with a concussion.
Campbell has been ruled out of this weekend’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
“I thought he got hit in the face mask right from the beginning and then obviously you see the replay, and it’s really easy to see from all the angles except the one that the referee had — he’s standing behind,” Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner said.
