Report: Ray Lewis Fined $20,000 For Hit on Hines Ward

New, comments

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting Wednesday Ravens LB Ray Lewis has been fined $20,000 for a hit on Steelers WR Hines Ward that took him out of the game. 

This news comes in wake of a $40,000 fine issued to Steelers FS Ryan Clark for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Ravens TE Ed Dickson.

Clark received a penalty for his hit, but Lewis did not.

Schefter reported Monday he expected fines for Clark and Lewis, as well as Steelers LB James Harrison. There hasn't been any news on Harrison just yet, but it's a good bet it'll be reported soon, considering the speed in which Clark's and Lewis's fines were reported. 

Ward was visibly dazed when he was being assisted by trainers after the hit. He got up and walked off the field with a little help, but did not return. His helmet was immediately taken away. 

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said in his press conference Tuesday Ward was "ok," and may be available to play Sunday at Cincinnati.
