Quinton Coples of the Jets won his appeal of a fine for a hit on Titans quarterback Jake Locker in Week 4, according to Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News. The play can be seen here.

Locker had to be carted off the field after injuring his hip on the hit, but he said it wasn't a dirty play, and no flags were thrown. Muhammad Wilkerson hit Locker in the chest after the quarterback released a throw, and then the quarterback ricocheted into Coples, who knocked Locker to the turf.

The NFL levied $23,660 in fines for the two hits, but Wilkerson also won his appeal last month.

Wilkerson leads the Jets (5-5) with eight sacks, while Coples has 21 tackles and a forced fumble.
