The NFL has fined Steelers cornerback William Gay $15,750 for unnecessary roughness for his hit on Browns quarterback Jason Campbell in the 27-11 victory Nov 24.

Gay’s arm struck Campbell in the head on a sack that resulted in a forced fumble. Will Allen scooped up the fumble Gay caused and raced 48 yards to the Browns 4. The Steelers scored on the next play to take a 20-3 lead in the third quarter.

Campbell was forced to leave the game with a concussion and will miss the Browns’ game Sunday against the Jaguars.

According to an NFL spokesman, Gay was fined because he “unnecessarily delivered a forcible blow to his opponent’s head and neck area.”
