Doug Legursky Fined $10K For Clipping Against Seahawks
Steelers right guard Doug Legursky has been fined $10,000 for a personal foul clip on Seahawks defensive tackle Al Woods during the third quarter of Sunday\’s game according to Mark Kaboly. Legursky clipped Woods from behind on a 1st & 10 pass play to running back Rashard Mendenhall. Legursky was flagged 15 yards on the play. According to Scott Brown, Legursky will appeal the fine.
Legursky is the 3rd Steelers player fined this season as safety Troy Polamalu was fined $15,000 last week for unnecessary roughness for his horse-collar tackle on Ravens running back Ricky Williams. Also fined in week 1 was cornerback Ike Taylor. Taylor was docked $15,000 for head-butting Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher late in the game.
As previously mentioned, Seahawks defensive end Raheem Brock was fined $15,000 on Wednesday for his low hit on quarterback Ben Roethlisberger shortly before half-time. Brock reportedly will appeal that fine, but according to my animated gif, I doubt he wins that appeal.
