Pretty much expected. I think Greenway knew it was coming too. I dont think Greenway intended to hit Calvin Johnson late, it just kind of happened. I think Greenway thought that CJ would have come down with that reception but he dropped it.

As expected. He obviously didn't intend to hit him that way, but the fine is still deserved.

Might be worth nothing that Josh Robinson was not fined, which is good to hear as well. I was worried the league might come down on him.

I think we all saw that one coming. Tough luck. Thankfully neither Greenway or Johnson got hurt on the play.

At least NFL is consistent with these fines.
