Baltimore Ravens edge rusher Odafe Oweh was fined $11,457 by the NFL after his high hit on Teddy Bridgewater knocked the Denver Broncos quarterback out of last week’s game with a concussion, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Oweh was not flagged for the hit, but the league’s fine seems to imply that his high tackle should have been a penalty. Bridgewater was ruled out of the game at halftime and Denver went on to lose, 23-7.
Oweh wasn’t the only player fined from that game. Broncos safety Justin Simmons was fined $10,300 for unnecessary roughness, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis. Denver’s safety was not penalized for a facemask during the game, but the league caught it on film.
Ravens defenders Justin Madubuike and Chuck Clark were not fined for their hits on Bridgewater and receiver Diontae Spencer, respectively. And Broncos defensive lineman Mike Purcell was not fined for a low hit on Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson that sparked frustration from fans in Baltimore.
