Sherman fined $9000 for hit on Carpenter - reports

Updated: 

Richard Sherman's low hit on Buffalo Bills kicker Dan Carpenter did not cost the Seattle Seahawks 15 yards on Monday night, but it will cost Sherman some cash.

According to reports in the States, the NFL fined Sherman roughly $9,000 for the hit in question.

Carpenter received medical attention after Sherman made contact with him on a kick Monday night during the Seahawks' 31-25 win but was back on his feet almost immediately. His missed field-goal attempt two plays later may have altered the outcome of the game.

Sherman was flagged for offsides on the play, but defended his hit on Carpenter and said he was simply playing to the whistle and going for the ball.
