NEW YORK (AP) - Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed was fined $55,000 by the NFL for his high hit on the New York Giants' Victor Cruz last weekend.
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.
