Report: K.J. Wright fined for hit on Richard Rodgers

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman wasn't the only player fined for his work during week 14's loss to the Green Bay Packers.

According to the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta, outside linebacker K.J. Wright was also fined for his third-quarter hit on Packers tight end Richard Rodgers.

The hit did garner a unnecessary roughness penalty during the game and because Rodgers held on to make the catch, the Packers had first-and-goal from their opponent's three-yard line. The Packers did score on the drive with Rodgers not missing a play of action due to the hit.
