Browns tackle draws fine for hit

By Wire services
Published November 16, 2003

CLEVELAND - Browns defensive tackle Gerard Warren has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for his hit last week on Kansas City offensive lineman Brian Waters.

Warren hit Waters with his helmet after Chiefs quarterback Trent Green threw a pass to his lineman, who was an ineligible receiver.

Warren drew a 15-yard penalty on the play, which helped the unbeaten Chiefs (9-0) score a touchdown en route to their 41-20 win over the Browns.

Last week, Browns coach Butch Davis said he didn't find anything wrong with Warren's hit, and claimed the lineman didn't hear the whistle.

Warren can appeal the fine.

As a rookie, Warren, a former Gator, was fined $35,000 by the NFL for a late hit on Jacksonville quarterback Mark Brunell.

BEARS: Running back Adrian Peterson will miss the rest of the season after the team placed him on injured reserve Saturday with an ankle injury. Peterson, a second-year back out of Georgia Southern, has been sidelined since he was hurt Oct. 19 against Seattle.

GIANTS: Kicker Brett Conway was waived Saturday, meaning Matt Bryant will kick against the Eagles. Bryant pulled a hamstring against Miami on Oct. 5 and returned to practice only this week.

Tight end Darnell Dinkins and offensive lineman Scott Peters were signed to the active roster and lineman Omar Smith was waived.

RAIDERS: Not everything is grim for the 2-7 Raiders these days. If they finish with the worst record in the league - a distinct possibility considering they're through the soft part of their schedule and they're down to No. 3 quarterback Rick Mirer - they get the No. 1 pick in next spring's draft. They'll also get an extra second-round selection as part of the deal that sent Jon Gruden to Tampa Bay.

EH? GAME: The Montreal Alouettes and Edmonton Eskimos will meet today in the CFL championship game for the second consecutive year.

The Alouettes ended a 25-year Grey Cup drought when they beat the Eskimos 25-16 last year in Edmonton.
