Low block fines. Fines for head shots. Soon there will be a fine for medium height blocks, too.

Now players are going for the knees, because they don't want the potentially bigger fine for head shots. The NFL is more sensitive to concussion-causing head shots than to knee shots.

Suh is a major "repeat offender", hence the huge fine. Suh is a special case.

I agree players may aim low to avoid the headshot ransom.

James Harrison got $75K for a headshot 3 years ago.

Dustin Keller's injury should have accompanied a fine for Swearinger...The NFL need's to deal withe these knee shots immediately.......Suh's next fine should be $500,000, then a season off.....
