Ahkello Witherspoon fined $28,075 for hit that left Jared Cook with concussion
 
The NFL fined 49ers cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon $28,075 for his illegal hit sent Saints tight end Jared Cook to the sideline with a concussion.

The hit came with 4:51 remaining in the first quarter on Cook’s second touchdown.

Officials threw a flag on Witherspoon for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Cook, and the Saints tried a two-point conversion after accepting the 1-yard penalty instead of choosing 15 yards on the kickoff.

I think we racked up 2 or 3 fines for the facemask, but those were only 10k fines. This one was nearly 30k, which means it was a helmet hit that should have been called. Sad.

Was flagged. Or do you mean it was the correct call?

I honestly thought Godhell would let him get away with that since it was only a New Orleans player getting knocked out.

The way the season has gone I was shocked they threw the flag and even more shocked they upheld the TD.
