TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -Arizona Cardinals strong safety Adrian Wilson has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for a hit on Buffalo quarterback Trent Edwards last Sunday.
Wilson said Friday that league officials also put him on notice he may face heavier fines or a suspension for future incidents.
Wilson hit Edwards on the third play of last week's game. The hit was not helmet-to-helmet, but Edwards suffered a concussion and did not return to the game. No penalty was called on the play.
League officials decided that Wilson unnecessarily drove Edwards to the ground.
``We'll appeal it and see where it goes,'' Wilson said. ``But it's kind of hard to appeal something when you have 15 personal fouls in your career, numerous fines for hits like that and kind of a reputation.''
Wilson was fined for a late hit and a horse collar tackle last season.
