Harris fined, Gandy practices, Warner wins

Posted by Darren Urban on November 13, 2009 – 12:29 pm

So many tibdits after practice today, starting with the fact the NFL has fined Bears DT Tommie Harris $7,500 for his punch of Cards G Deuce Lutui. I thought it might be more, to be honest. Bears QB Jay Cutler got dinged with a $20,000 for abusive conduct toward an official in the Cards’ game.

T Mike Gandy (pelvis) returned to practice on a limited basis today and I am guessing he finds his way into the lineup Sunday, although he is officially questionable. The Cards may be short at linebacker though, since LBs Gerald Hayes and Chike Okeafor — both of whom have back issues — sat for a third straight day and are listed as doubtful. Ali Highsmith would start for Hayes, and we’ll see if it is Will Davis or Bertrand Berry in Okeafor’s place. Special-teamer Sean Morey (concussion) was limited. He has yet to be cleared for contact, but coach Ken Whisenhunt said Morey should be by tomorrow and be a game-day decision. He, Gandy, DE Kenny Iwebema (knee) and tight end Ben Patrick (knee) are questionable.

Finally, it turns out that on the heels of Kurt Warner winning NFC offensive player of the week award, voters also saw fit to give Warner the FedEx Air player of the week award after his five TD passes this past week.

I know people want to know about the blackout, but that announcement is an hour or two off. I still think the sellout happens.

    7.5k for a deliberate punch to a player in the head and 20k for a player mouthing off to an official. Are you kidding me? Something is wrong with the league’s fine policy. Does anyone else agree?

    yes i totally agree,what a joke…..i couldn’t believe it,i also believe he should of been suspended another game. i don’t care who u are,u just don’t do that,be a man and just walk away,ya i know its football but when u got a player down u don’t go and hit him.just like in the superbowl witch the cardinals should of won.when one of pittsburg’s player hit one of our guys and i don’t think it was even called.these refs can ruin a game.

    Harris probable hurt his hand hitting Lutuis helmet more then he hurt Lutui, thats not the point of the fine it,s the act that he was find for.

    Now the refs thats different those guys are out there unprotected and at the mercey of any irate player soooo if u take money out of a players pocket a lot of money it makes them think twice not to mention what the NFL wood do to them.

    Why thats like picking on a cheer leader hmmm.
