NEW YORK -- Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for making helmet-to-helmet contact with Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who was defenseless at the time.

The hit came in Indianapolis' victory Nov. 8 at Jacksonville and negated an interception by Aaron Ross.

Jaguars safety Dawan Landry was fined $10,000 for a fourth-quarter hit on Luck that made contact to the head and neck area after Luck declared himself down by sliding feet first.

Fined $21,000 on Friday were 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Rams quarterback Sam Bradford last Sunday, and Vikings linebacker Jasper Brinkley for a helmet hit on a defenseless Lions player.
