PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Baltimore Ravens’ safety Ed Reed is accusing Steelers’ wide receiver Hines Ward of taking a “cheap-shot” at him during Sunday’s game, according to BaltimoreRavens.com.
Reed was commenting on the Jameel McClain $40,000 fine for his hit on Steelers’ tight end Heath Miller and the $15,000 fine assessed to Haloti Ngata for breaking Ben Roethlisberger’s nose.
Reed says he wants offensive players held to the same standards.
“I moved out the way, but he came at me with his head first, [with] the crown of the helmet,” Reed said. “The first play of the game, he did this. He fell, and then a couple of plays later, he did the same thing. There’s no fine?
“He tried to cheap-shot me, and he didn’t get a fine. He came at me with his head down. I moved out the way. Who’s going to go police that?”
