Two Broncos Players Fined for Hits on Cam Newton

According to multiple media outlets, Denver Broncos defensive back Darian Stewart and linebacker Brandon Marshall have been fined for helmet-to-helmet hits on Cam Newton in Thursday's season opening game. 

Stewart was fined more than $18,000, while Marshall was fined more than $24,000. 

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Stewart's fine is for $18,231, which is the minimum fine for a first-time offender for a "roughing the passer" penalty. 

Stewart was not fined for "Impermissible use of the helmet (including illegal launching)" which carries a minimum fine of $24,309 for a first-time offender.

Marshall, however, was fined over $24,000 because his feet left the ground to hit Newton, according to a report from NFL.com. 

 

 

Newton was hit in the head on four separate occasions by Broncos defenders, but a flag was only thrown after the play involving Stewart.
