Ravens cornerback Cary Williams won't be fined for pushing ref

Sunday February 10th, 2013

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Cary Williams will not be fined for pushing an official during Super Bowl XLVII, reports USA Today.

Williams pushed head linesman Steve Stelljes out of the way as he got up after being taken to the ground during a scuffle after Ravens safety Ed Reed picked off San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the second quarter of the Ravens' 34-31 victory over the 49ers on Sunday. Williams was not penalized on the play.

"It was a situation where I didn't see who the heck I pushed. Those guys kicked my helmet off, took my helmet off man, it's just a part of the process. Whatever," Williams said after the game. "It's a reaction. You see teammates out there getting hit late, guys pulling guys after the whistle. My helmet came off, I couldn't barely see, and I just reacted. It is what it is."
