FOXBORO (CBS) – Patriots defensive end Andre Carter has been fined $15,000 by the NFL for his hit on Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman, according to a report.
ESPNBoston.com’s Mike Reiss, a frequent guest on Patriots Gameday and Sports Final, reports that Carter plans to appeal the fine.
In the third quarter of Sunday’s game, Carter was flagged for hitting Grossman below the knees, negating a Devin McCourty interception.
Carter has 10 sacks this year in his first season with the Patriots.
He spent the first five years of his career with the 49ers, and another five with the Redskins before heading to New England.
