One day after the NFL decided to suspend the Ravens' safety for "repeated violations" of player safety rules, appeals officer Ted Cottrell reduced the penalty to a $50,000 fine, the league announced. Cottrell held a telephone hearing, the morning of Nov. 20, involving both Reed and the NFL Players Association to review Reed's third helmet-to-helmet hit against a defenseless receiver in three seasons. The latest incident occurred on Sunday night of Week 11, when Reed was penalized for a hit on Steelers' wideout Emmanuel Sanders. In a letter to Reed, Cottrell wrote that the hit did not warrant a suspension, which would have cost Reed $423,529 in salary.

The incident in question occurred near the end of the game, when Hall expressed frustration that Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders wasn't called for a post-play tussle. Hall took off his helmet and berated the head linesman of the game for not making a call. Hall insinuated that the official was firing back as well, saying he was "dishing it out just as much as I'm dishing it out."

Emmanuel Sanders and Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers and their wide receiver Sanders were fined a combined $50,000 for Sanders' actions in his team's 24-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7. Sanders will pay $15,000 of the fine, while the Steelers will pay the remaining $35,000 to the league. The Steelers were in the midst of an an offensive drive in the fourth quarter of that game when Sanders fell to the ground, claiming he was suffering from cramps. However, the fact that Sanders seemed to be fully healthy on the previous play and the suddenness of his reaction aroused suspicion. By faking an injury, Sanders could stop the game clock without costing the Steelers a timeout.

Phillips successfully appealed his fine.
