Kennedy fined by the NFL

The NFL is at it again, fining safety Kenoy Kennedy $7,500 for a hit against Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce.

It didn't take long for Denver to pick up where they left off last season, at least as far as the NFL is concerned.

On Thursday league officials levied a $7,500 fine against Broncos safety Kenoy Kennedy for what they felt was a blindsided hit against St. Louis Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce in Sunday's season opener.

Kennedy hit Bruce after deflecting a Kurt Warner pass into the arms of defensive end Keith Washington, who made his first interception as an NFL player.

Fines are nothing new to the Broncos, last season the team racked up an all-time high of $10,000, most of which came in the form of illegal blocking fines. Over the past three years the Broncos fine totals have risen steadily on a year by year basis.

Although he was not available for comment, it is expected that Kennedy will appeal the fine.
