Earlier this week I brought to light the possibility that Kansas City Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis could face a fine for his "contact to the helmet of a defenseless receiver" penalty last Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Browns tight end Evan Moore received a concussion on the play and that's a big point of emphasis for the NFL.
The news is in...and the hit cost Lewis $5,000, a league spokesman confirmed Friday afternoon.
Chiefs defensive end Shaun Smith was accused of grabbing Browns center Alex Mack below the belt but confirmed to Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star that he was not fined for the alleged incident. Smith denied it happening.
Speaking of Mack, as they say it's always the second guy that gets caught. He was fined $5,000 for an unnecessary roughness call on Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson.
