Ray Lewis fined $5,000 by NFL for hit on Austin Collie

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was fined $5,000 by the NFL, a league spokesman told The Sun.

Lewis was disciplined “specifically on a pass play [where] he made helmet to helmet contact with the opponent,” the spokesman said.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh insisted earlier this week that it was a legal hit, saying he didn’t expect Lewis to be fined.

Lewis collided with Colts receiver Austin Collie, breaking up a pass in the end zone late in the second quarter. There were questions whether Lewis led with his helmet or shoulder.
