The NFL has fined Redskins cornerback E.J. Biggers $21,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Biggers early in the first quarter drew a flag for unnecessary roughness for a hit on Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

On the play, Nick Foles completed a 19-yard pass to Jackson, and  Biggers delivered the blow at the end of the completion. That tacked on another 15 yards, and moved the ball to the Eagles’s 45.

Biggers has said that he plans to appeal the fine.
