NFC South: Cullen Loeffler

We told you on Monday that Minnesota punter Chris Kluwe complained about a hit Atlanta special-teams player Kerry Meier put on long-snapper Cullen Loeffler.

Well, it looks like the NFL office agrees that Meier’s hit was out of line.

Meier has been fined $20,000, according to Jason La Confora.

Looks like the Minnesota Vikings are upset with Atlanta special-teams player and receiver Kerry Meier.

Minnesota punter Chris Kluwe had some strong words for Meier via Twitter. Meier hit Minnesota long-snapper Cullen Loeffler in the second quarter of Sunday's game and it appears Loeffler will miss the rest of the season with a fracture in his lower back.

Kluwe tweeted: "To the Falcon that cheapshotted Loeffler - I hope someone does the same [expletive] to you and knocks you out for the rest of the year too."

You can read all of what Kluwe had to say by clicking here. But let’s give you fair warning: There’s some rough language involved.
