Ed Reed fined $55,000 for hit on Cruz


The Baltimore Ravens veteran safety, Ed Reed, was fined $55,000 yesterday by the NFL for his brutal hit this past Sunday on the New York Giants wide receiver, Victor Cruz.

He was not suspended for the hit but was charged with striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area.

This was not Reeds first fine this season. In November, he was suspended one game for his hard hit against the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. It was later overturned by the league into a $50,000 fine.

Luckily, Victor Cruz was not hurt by the big hit on Sunday.
