Ray Lewis fined $20,000
Lewis plans to appeal the fine.
"Yeah, I heard from the league and like I said they fined me whatever they was going to fine me," Lewis said. "The thing is you definitely respect them trying to protect player safety.

"When the receiver has the ball, your job is to disengage him from the ball. You never want to hurt nobody. I've been in this business too long. I just think once you start getting into these fines I don't know how they come up with the numbers most of the time." Lewis said he didn't speak to Ward about the hit.
"No, talk to Hiines for what?" Lewis said. "You don't have conversations after hits. You just keep moving." For more coverage of the Ravens, go to bal.scout.com.
