Jameel McClain, Haloti Ngata Fined for Hits vs. Steelers Sunday Night

Ben RoethlisbergerPITTSBURGH (AP) -- The NFL has fined Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain $40,000 for his helmet hit that left Steelers tight end Heath Miller with a concussion.

Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata was fined $15,000 for hitting Ben Roethlisberger's helmet and breaking the Pittsburgh quarterback's nose. Ngata's left hand raked across the quarterback's face during Pittsburgh's first offensive series. Ngata was not penalized.

Roethlisberger played the entire game, which Pittsburgh won 13-10. He underwent surgery on the nose Monday.

Despite the NFL's stricter enforcement of potentially dangerous hits, McClain was not penalized for a hit that bent Miller's head and neck backward during the third quarter Sunday night. Miller remained on the turf for several minutes before being helped off the field.
