Report: Steelers LB Jason Worilds Fined $15,750 For Hit On Giants QB David Carr

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Jason Worilds was flagged twice last Saturday night in a matter of three plays during the preseason opener against the New York Giants and according to Tom Pelissero of the USA Today, the fourth-year linebacker has been fined $15,750 for one of those penalties.

With :26 left to go in the first half, Worilds was flagged 15 yards for roughing Giants quarterback David Carr after he had already gotten rid of the football. Just two plays later, Worilds was again flagged for 15 yards for unnecessary roughness following an altercation with a Giants player.

Worilds was immediately yanked from the game and was seen getting a stern talking to from head coach Mike Tomlin on his way to the sideline. He did not play another snap for the remainder of the game.

During his first three years in the league, Worilds has only been flagged once and that was for a facemask penalty in the Week 3 game last season against the Oakland Raiders.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    I don’t have a problem with physical play, he was simply being an idiot

  • Matt Manzo

    As far as stepping in for Harrison he’s doing a great job!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Jason “James Harrison” Worlids has arrived to take those fines for the Steelers!

  • sgtrobo

    well, when he dominates in the run game and notches double digit sacks, then I’ll go along with you. :P

    I couldn’t make the photos drag in…so do it in your minds (or on google)

    Cue photo: Nurse Ratched (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest)
    Cue photo: Roger Goodell (any will do)

    I think we may have found the HARBINGER!!!!!

    P.S. Remind A. Brown not to spin the ball or point after his first downs. THEY are WATCHING him! smh

  • Brendon Glad

    But I’ll admit…the Steelers have had more worthy grievances than that one. I’m just playing around. (Because I noticed the resemblance recently).

  • Douglas Andrews

    That’s alot of coins to shell out for the first preseason game. Hope that’s not a sign of things to come.

  • Michael Pearce

    Wait, your kidding me right? Almost $16,000.00 for what? Was it a blow to the head when he was down or a a vicious hit to the back of the knee’s late? I dont even remember the hits. This is not football anymore. Player are going to be afraid to touch anyone soon. This sucks…

  • DAYSNWAYS

    He was coming with force and when he initiated his dive towards Carr he still had the ball in his hands, there was no way he could have bailed out, it was the wrong call in my opinion, and no way should it have been fined, this game is getting ridiculous!!

  • Matt Manzo

    Not really the topic… But have any of u noticed the new rb head tuck rule? I haven’t seen it called once!

  • treeher

    I think Manzo was being facetious – penalties, fines – replacing Harrison …
