Titans_Bernard_Pollard_2013 [1]Tennessee Titans safety Bernard Pollard tweeted Wednesday that he was fined $42,000 by the NFL for his hit on Andre Johnson last Sunday that resulted in a concussion for the Houston Texans receiver.

 

A league source confirmed to ESPN Senior NFL Insider Chris Mortensen that Pollard was fined $42,000. The source says that Pollard was fined for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head with with his shoulder. A penalty flag wasn’t thrown on the play, in which Pollard turned his head out of the way so it wouldn’t be a helmet-to-helmet hit.
