Reed Fined $21,000 for Hit in New England Game

Reed Fined for NE Hit.

The league announced Friday evening that safety Ed Reed was fined $21,000 for his hit on Patriots receiver Deion Brach in the Ravens’ 31-30 Week 3 win.

The NFL ruled that Reed struck a defenseless player in the head and neck area. The hit caused Branch to drop the ball and Reed was given a 15-yard personal foul on the play.

The Pats receiver carries no ill-will about the hit, shaking Reed’s hand on field.

He’s a great player. He made a great play,” Branch told Boston reporters. “I wasn’t mad about the hit. I was mad that the ball came out of my hands. … We all know going across the middle you’re going to get hit. … Most time I have enough time to catch the ball and get on the ground. But he was on me so fast, I really didn’t have time to react. So, unfortunately I dropped the ball. He made a good play. We got a flag out of it. Who knows what it was.”
