Quandre Diggs fined $15,000 for hit that led to his ejection in Week 2

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks were without Quandre Diggs for the majority of their Week 2 victory, after the free safety was ejected for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Patriots wide receiver N’Keal Harry.

After the game, Seattle coach Pete Carroll expressed his disappointment in Diggs’ hit and said he knows to do better and keep his helmet out of tackling. For his part, Diggs reached out to Harry to apologize for the hit afterwards.

Unfortunately for Diggs, a lack of intent and later, an apology, wasn’t enough for him to avoid a fine from the league. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported on Saturday that Diggs was fined $15,000 by the league for his hit on Harry, which led to an ejection.

Thankfully, Harry came out of the hit healthy, the Seahawks won despite Diggs’ ejection, and hopefully, the team’s centerfielder will avoid similar collisions moving forward. Unfortunately, there’s no getting that $15,000 back.
