The NFL on Tuesday fined New England Patriots defensive back Brandon Meriweather $50,000 for two helmet-to-helmet hits on Todd Heap in Sunday’s game, according to a league source. He will not be suspended.

Meriweather was flagged for a second-quarter hit on Heap, who lay on the field being attended to by Ravens medical personnel for several minutes before getting up under his own power. Heap was leaping for a Joe Flacco pass that had sailed over his head when Meriweather thrust himself, helmet-first, into the Ravens' tight end.

Earlier in the game, Meriwather also hit Heap near the goal line.
