Steelers LB Harrison Fined $25,000 for hit on Bills QB Fitzpatrick

Here we go again.

Steelers LB James Harrison has been fined $25,000 for roughing the passer, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Harrison made “helmet contact” to the chest of Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was in a defenseless position at the time the contact was made.

Harrison, a three-time pro bowler, has already been fined multiple times by the NFL this season for hits he has delivered.

On Monday, Harrison lost two appeals for fines the league levied on hits delivered to Cleveland Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi ($75,000) and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees ($20,000).
