NEW YORK -- Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed, Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch and Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy each have been fined $21,000 by the NFL for flagrant hits.

Reed was fined for striking defenceless Patriots receiver Deion Branch in the head and neck area last Sunday night. Tulloch was docked for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Tennessee tight end Craig Stevens. Mundy's hit on Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey resulted in his fine.

Heyward-Bey was taken from the field on a stretcher and hospitalized with a concussion.

Four players were fined $15,750 Friday by the league: Denver LB Von Miller, Cincinnati defensive back Adam Jones, Eagles defensive end Jason Babin, and Titans DE Scott Solomon.

Miller was tagged for driving Houston quarterback Matt Schaub to the ground one play before fellow Broncos linebacker Joe Mays' hit took off a piece of Schaub's left earlobe. Mays was suspended for one game and fined $50,000 earlier this week.

Denver has been fined more than $150,000 in the first three weeks of the season, with coach John Fox and defensive co-ordinator Jack Del Rio getting theirs for verbal abuse of the replacement officials.

Jones made a horse-collar tackle on Redskins running back Alfred Morris. Babin was fined for the second time in three weeks, this for a horse-collar tackle of Arizona's LaRod Stephens-Howling that was not penalized.

Solomon was fined for a low hit on Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Tulloch was involved in another play resulting in a fine for Tennessee guard Leroy Harris, who hit Tulloch after the whistle and was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness.

Bengals cornerback Terence Newman was docked $10,000 for hitting Redskins QB Robert Griffin III out of bounds.

Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie lost $7,875 for a late hit against Arizona. Seattle CB Brandon Browner got the same fine for unnecessary roughness on Packers receiver Greg Jennings.
