Jets DLs confirm fines, will appeal
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP)
Wilkerson says Thursday he was docked $15,785 for roughing the passer, but adds that no penalty was called on the play and insists it wasn't ''a dirty hit.'' Coples was fined $7,875, and also says his hit was simply ''a football play.''
Locker was hit by both Wilkerson and Coples in the third quarter of Tennessee's 38-13 win Sunday after he threw a pass. Locker was carted off the field and expected to miss a few weeks with a sprained right hip and knee.
Titans coach Mike Munchak called both hits ''unnecessary,'' but Locker said he didn't think either player should be fined.
