Steelers' Farrior leads group of seven players fined by NFL

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Farrior was fined $15,000 by the NFL on Friday for a play during the Steelers' 23-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts in which Farrior hit Kerry Collins in the head and neck area, NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported.

Farrior did not receive a flag on the play but he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he anticipated a fine because Collins eventually left Sunday's game with concussion-like symptoms.

Farrior did not believe the hit warranted a penalty and his agent told the Post-Gazette that Farrior planned to appeal the fine.

Farrior wasn't the only player to find a FedEx delivery in his locker Friday, La Canfora reported.

New England Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich was fined $15,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. San Diego Chargers linebacker Travis LaBoy was hit with a $15,000 fine for hitting the quarterback in the head and neck area.

Green Bay linebacker Erik Walden is out $15,000 for a head shot on Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, according to a league source, while Miami Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell also was fined $15,000 for hitting Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt Mccoy in the head and neck area on a pass play.
