    Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley has been fined $15,000 by the NFL for his late hit on Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers on Sunday.

    Wimbley hit Rivers after he threw a pass in San Diego’s 38-10 win. The Titans were penalized 15 yards on the play.

    “I can’t say I am surprised, but during the time it happened I thought it was a good hit,’’ Wimbley said. “I didn’t think there was anything wrong with it when it happened.”

    RIDICULOUS. No way at all should that have gotten a fine.

    It was a good clean late hit. Those types of things shouldnt carry fines if theyre getting 15-yards.

    This is atrocious. It was a penalty, that's all. Any penalty on a QB is fined now?

    He hit him late he didn't hit him dirty or in any manner that was a danger to the 2 bit POS!

    $15,000? Wow, did they increase the fines or has it been that high?

    I was at this game. There was nothing dirty about this hit. It warranted a penalty flag for a 15 yard penalty, but that's it.
