"Bernard Pollard was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness," Rush wrote in an e-mail. "Specifically, on a pass play, he struck a defenseless player in the head and neck area."
Pollard was penalized 15 yards for hitting Karim in what was described as a helmet-to-helmet hit by a referee. However, Pollard insisted that he used his shoulder and replays appeared to support that version of events.
However, Karim was in a vulnerable position due to how rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert led him across the middle.
