Steelers linebacker fined $ 5,000 for hit on Titans Young

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has been fined $5,000 for slamming Titans quarterback Vince Young to the turf while sacking him Sunday.

Harrison was not penalized on the play, but Titans coach Jeff Fisher questioned on Monday why the former All-Pro linebacker wasn't called for unnecessary roughness.

Harrison was chosen as the AFC defensive player of the week after having two sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, a tackle for a loss and 11 tackles as the Steelers won 19-11.
