Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Denzel Perryman was not fined by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins in the teams’ Week 2 game, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid called the tackle “very questionable.”

“We’re not supposed to have those in our game ever,” Reid told the media in the post-game press conference.

Watkins tweeted about the play on Sunday night.

The wide receiver missed practice on Thursday but managed to return to the field on a limited basis on Friday — and then put in a full practice on Saturday.

“He practiced in full the last couple days,” said Reid. “He had a stiff neck, and tribute to the kid, he lived in the training room and got the knot in there worked out and I think he feels pretty good right now. So, we’ll just monitor him as we go and see how he does.”

The Chiefs head to Baltimore to play the Ravens on Monday Night Football. Watkins is officially listed as questionable for the game.
