Steelers vs. Raiders: Ryan Mundy fined $21,000 for Darrius Heyward-Bey hit, according to report

According to a tweet from Rich Walsh of WPXI NBC Pittsburgh, Steelers safety Ryan Mundy has been fined $21,000 by the NFL for his hit on Raiders WR Darius Heyward-Bey during Pittsburgh's 34-31 loss to Oakland on Sunday. Some suspected that Mundy would be suspended as a result of the hit, but the fine is the only form of discipline handed out by the league as a result of the play.

Heyward-Bey suffered a concussion and strained neck as a result of the hit, and was knocked unconscious for 10 minutes before being revived and taken to the hospital. Mundy's hit did not draw a penalty flag from the replacement officials working the game. Take a look again:

There's no timetable yet for Heyward-Bey's return. Mundy commented after the game that he did not intentionally lead with his head on the hit, and expressed remorse that he injured Heyward-Bey on the hit.

According to Walsh, Mundy will appeal the fine.
