Ravens tackle Michael Oher fined $10,000 by NFL

Wide receiver Torrey Smith avoids a fine

December 28, 2012|By Jeff Zrebiec

Veteran safety Ed Reed was not the only Raven fined for actions during the team's 33-14 victory over the New York Giants last week.

Ravens left tackle Michael Oher was fined $10,000 for a chop block on Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka early in the third quarter. Oher was called for a personal foul on the play, one of his two penalities on the Ravens' 16-play, 82-yard drive that ended with Justin Tucker's 21-yard field goal.

Earlier in that drive, Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was called for a personal foul for a crack-back block. Smith was not fined for the block.

Reed was assessed a $55,000 fine for his fourth-quarter hit on Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz. Reed was ruled to have committed unnecessary roughness for an illegal hit to the head and neck area of a defenseless receiver.
