The NFL levied fines this week against two defensive players for hits on NFC West quarterbacks in Week 11:
$7,500 against Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey for his fourth-quarter hit on Arizona Cardinals quarterback Derek Anderson. Officials flagged Dorsey on the play. The league fined him for striking Anderson in the knee area.
$5,000 against Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Adam Hayward for a first-quarter hit on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Troy Smith. Officials flagged Hayward on the play. The league fined him for striking Smith in the head area.
The league did not fine Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Raheem Brock for his disputed hit on New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Brock and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll disputed the call. The league's decision against fining Brock supports their claims.
