ALAMEDA -– Raiders strong safety Brandian Ross was fined for a hit that concussed tight end Jordan Cameron during Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns.
The NFL levied a $22,050 penalty for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area. He was flagged for the offense during the game, which helped the Browns tally a second-quarter field goal.
Ross was trying to dislodge the football, but was late and a smidge inaccurate in his attempt, which led to illegal contact with his helmet. Cameron was removed from the game and has been ruled out of Cleveland’s upcoming game against Tampa Bay.
Ross will start and play extensively in Sunday’s road game against the Seattle Seahawks. He has taken the position over after Usama Young and Tyvon Branch suffered season-ending injuries.
