The NFL is reviewing Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain's helmet-to-helmet hit on Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller on Sunday night, as well as Haloti Ngata's punch that broke Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's nose.
"[Sunday] night we confirmed Jameel McClain's hit to the head of Heath Miller should have been flagged," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted. "Today we [are] confirming McClain will be fined."
Miller's head and neck were bent backward and his head bounced off the turf as he landed. He lay motionless on the field for several minutes as medical personnel worked on him. He was able to get up and walk off.
