Report: T.J. Ward To Be Fined $15,000 For Hit On Jordan Shipley

Typically the NFL doesn't hand out fines for infractions until the Friday following the games in which players would be fined for. The Enquirer's Joe Reedy, who writes that the league will officially announce a fine on Friday, posted a quote from former NFL Head of Officials, Mike Pereira saying that T.J. Ward's hit on Jordan Shipley should cost the Browns safety at least $25,000.

“In my mind you hit him for $25,000 or more. It was a malicious hit and a cheap shot. Some say you shouldn’t use him as an example, I say use him as one,” Pereira said Tuesday. “The league is taking a strong stance against hits against defenseless players. You fine him substantially and everyone else responds. Somehow they have to change player’s attitudes. There’s not excuse to put them at risk.”

Tom Withers, an AP Sports writer that covers the Cleveland Browns, tweets the NFL is fining safety T.J. Ward $15,000 for his hit on Jordan Shipley that left the receiver with a concussion, and most likely out against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend.
