Green Bay Packers rookie linebacker Nick Perry got a free run on Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck this past Sunday and Perry took advantage of the clear path. Perry hit Luck hard and jarred the ball loose. As a result of the devastating hit on Luck, Perry has been fined $15,000 by the league.
“[The NFL said] I led with the crown of my head. For that, I got fined,” Perry said. “I’ve got to be more focused on making a play without the head.”
Here is a GIF of the hit:
You judge for yourself. Was it a clean hit or is it a hit that warrants a $15,000 fine?
