Bears’ Walters Fined For Raiders Hit
(CBS) The Bears have received their second fine of the season for an illegal hit.
According to a report from the Tribune, safety Anthony Walters has been fined $15,750 for his hit on Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater at the end of the 19-yard completion in the third quarter of the Bears’ third preseason game.
No flag was thrown on the play.
“They said I was fined for a hit because I contacted (Streater’s) helmet with either your helmet, shoulder pads or forearm,” Walters told the Tribune. “My thing is there was no flag thrown on the play. There weren’t really any replays on the TV copy. My thinking is, honestly, if the guy wasn’t hurt I don’t think there would have been a review of the play.”
He said he plans to appeal the fine.
