Jets' Garrett McIntyre fined for hit on Rams' Sam Bradford

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

The NFL fined New York Jets linebacker Garrett McIntyre $15,750 for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Rams quarterback Sam Bradford during Week 11's win.

The NFL commissioner's office fined New York Jets outside linebacker Garret McIntyre $15,750 for his helmet-to-helmet hit on St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford in the Jets' 27-13 win over the Rams last Sunday, via Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.

Garrett McIntyre's hit on Sam Bradford occurred late in the fourth quarter when the Rams were on their 23-yard line faced with a third down and 10 yards needed to convert a first down. Bradford threw an incomplete pass intended for Daryl Richardson, but the officials ruled it intentional grounding.

Normally a loss of a down, the Rams found themselves repeating the third down because McIntyre roughed the passer with a helmet-to-helmet hit. The penalties offset during the game, but McIntyre will still must pay the consequences.

The outside linebacker doesn't play much on defense, normally being part of the special teams unit for the Jets, but he does have two sacks on the season as well as a fumble recovery.
