Roundup: Ravens' Pollard fined $10K for helmet-to-helmet hit

Despite insisting twice this week that he wasn't fined, Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard was docked $10,000 by the NFL for a hit on Jacksonville Jaguars running back Deji Karimon Monday night, the Carroll County Times reported on Friday.

Pollard received a 15-yard penalty for what the referee called a helmet-to-helmet hit. Pollard insisted that he instead used his shoulder and replays appeared to support him.

Pollard had said on Wednesday and Thursday that he hadn't been fined.
