Reed struck the wide receiver in the head and neck area, and was penalized for the hit in the game. He had a one-game suspension last month for several helmet-to-helmet hits reduced to a $50,000 fine.
Carolina quarterback Cam Newton was fined $21,000 for abusive conduct toward a game official, and another $10,000 for kicking Oakland's Tommy Kelly after a play was over. Newton shouted at and bumped referee Jerome Boger in the fourth quarter of Carolina's 17-6 victory.
New England's Vince Wilfork was docked $30,000 for hitting Jacksonville offensive lineman Steve Vallos in the head with his forearm on a play in which possession changed.
