Ravens free safety Ed Reed has been fined a reported $55,000 for a penalized hit on New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz in last Sunday’s 33-14 win for Baltimore.
The veteran appeared to hit Cruz in the chest with his shoulder before making contact with the wideout’s facemask. Reed was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness for contact to the head and neck area of a defenseless player, according to Week 16 referee Carl Cheffers.
Earlier this season, Reed was initially suspended one game for a hit on Pittsburgh receiver Emmanuel Sanders before the suspension was overturned. Reed was instead fined $50,000 by arbitrator Ted Cotrell after an appeal that was supported by team president Dick Cass and general manager Ozzie Newsome.
“It’s just an interesting situation,” said Reed prior to news of the latest fine surfacing Thursday night. “I just play the game. I’ll let them make those decisions.”
