Ray Lewis Fined $25,000 for Hit on Chad Ochocinco


October 16, 2009

Ray Lewis Fined $25,000 for Hit on Chad Ochocinco Ray Lewis made it clear after the Ravens' loss in New England that he didn't agree with the rules protecting the quarterback.

Last week, he apparently didn't think too much of rules protecting receivers either, as he left his feet and led with his helmet to land a jarring hit on Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco. The receiver's helmet was knocked loose, and Lewis was flagged for unnecessary roughness.

Now, Lewis — who wasn't fined for his complaints in Foxborough — will have to pay. Big time.

Lewis was fined $25,000 by the NFL, ESPN.com reported on Friday.

The report says that the veteran linebacker will appeal the fine.

If you missed it, the hit can be seen on NFL.com if you fast forward to the 3:00 mark. The receiver posted photos of himself attending Monday night's game on his Twitter account, saying his eye was still swollen from the hit.
