Rich Schultz

A big hit came with a big fine.

According to a report from San Diego, Eagles starting inside linebacker has been fined for his hit on Chargers wide receiver Malcolm Floyd. The official ruling was that Ryans "struck a defenseless player in head and neck area with his shoulder". The fine is for $21,000.

The hit took place in Eagles loss to the Chargers in week 2. The referees did not throw a penalty flag on the hit. Floyd had to leave the game on a stretcher after laying on the ground motionless for several minutes. It was not a pleasant sight.

Fortunately, Floyd might return to football in a month, according to a recent report.

Here is a video replay of the incident - (Warning: Unpleasant)
