Two Redskins players have received fines for illegal hits in last Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
Washington Redskins defensive end Stephen Bowen was fined $15,000 fine for roughing the passer, even though he wasn’t penalized for the incident in Sunday’s game.
On the same fourth-quarter play in which DeAngelo Hall intercepted Tarvaris Jackson to snuff out the Seahawks’ final drive, Bowen lowered his head and hit Jackson helmet-to-helmet.
Bowen received credit for a hit on the quarterback, but no flag was thrown.
In the same game, rookie Roy Helu received a $7,500 fine for a chop block. The Redskins were penalized 15 yards on the third-down play in the first quarter.
