Landry fined for hit on Clements

Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry was fined a game check by the NFL for a helmet-on-helmet hit on Jets quarterback Kellen Clemens.

NFL executive Gene Washington issued the fines, citing the rule that says:

"using any part of a player's helmet [including the top/crown and forehead/hairline' parts] or facemask to butt, spear, or ram an opponent violently or unnecessarily; although such violent or unnecessary use of the helmet is impermissible against any opponent, game officials will give special attention in administering this rule to protect those players who are in virtually defenseless postures."

Landry was fined in excess of $16,000.
