The hit that put Tenneseee Titans quarterback Jake Locker on the sideline for several weeks didn't draw a penalty, but the NFL did fine the two New York Jets' defenders who tagged him on the play.
Locker, who has a sprained hip and won't play for at least three weeks, said he didn't fault Mohammed Wilkerson or Quinton Coples for his injury. Locker said "it wasn't anything malicious."
The NFL disagreed, fining Wilkerson $15,750 and Coples $7,875 for the play.
Titans head coach Mike Munchak was less forgiving than his quarterback. Munchak said Wednesday he called the league and had an "emotional" chat with NFL officials.
