Report: Ryan Mundy Fined For Hit That Didn't Draw A Flag

(CBS) Bears safety Ryan Mundy has been fined $22,500 for a hit he delivered to Falcons receiver Roddy White in Chicago's 27-13 win at Atlanta on Sunday, reported Wednesday morning. The hit originally drew a flag, but the officiating crew waved off the penalty after a discussion, ruling that Mundy led with the shoulder and not his head.

Alas, it appears the NFL has reconsidered and disciplined Mundy in an era in which player safety and head injuries have been placed under a microscope.

The Bears defense was extremely aggressive Sunday, with several players delivering big hits over on the middle. It likely contributed to some poor play from the Falcons receivers, who dropped at least six passes.

Mundy is second on the team with 30 tackles and has an interception this season.
