Brandon Meriweather apologizes for hit on Todd Heap

Brandon Meriweather apologized for the helmet-to-helmet hits Sunday that brought him a $50,000 fine from the NFL in its crackdown on dangerous hits.

"Once again, I'm going to say I'm sorry for the hit. I understand the league is trying to protect the health of all our players," Meriweather said.

"To be honest, I just want all this to go away. I want to focus, with the rest of my team, on the Chargers and really not let this come up again. I'm going to try my best to play within the rules, like my coach had always taught us. I'm going to hit and play the game like my coaches have always taught us. Even in training camp, we have always been taught the proper way to hit. Just focus on that and try to put it in my game in some way, shape or fashion.

"From here on, I'm focusing on the Chargers. Anything else spoken about this, I will not comment on."

The New England Patriots safety twice hit Baltimore Ravens tight end Todd Heap hard, knocking him out of the game for a time, and drew a flag for one tackle.
