A pair of former Kansas City Chiefs players are getting hit where it hurts after Sunday's game between the Chiefs and Houston Texans: the pocketbook. According to Houston's FOX affiliate, S Bernard Pollard and G Wade Smith -- both former Chiefs -- have been fined $5,000 for infractions in Sunday's game.
Pollard was fined for a late hit against Thomas Jones pushing him out of bounds.
"I understand the people who makes the rules are trying to bring safety to the game," Pollard said, "but how do you go to a bullfight and say,'be safe?""
I gotta side with Pollard on this one. That was a very tame push in the back at the end of the play.
As for Wade Smith, he was fined for a personal foul he received, specifically a leg whip.
Also fined for the Texans in the game was LB Adelwale Ogunleye for a late hit on Chiefs QB Matt Cassel.
