Baltimore Ravens safety Earl Thomas said he was fined $21,000 by the NFL for his hit on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph. Thomas received a penalty for roughing the passer after his helmet appeared to hit Rudolph's chin at 7:26 of the third quarter in the Ravens' 26-23 overtime win over the Steelers on Sunday.

Per the NFL's fine schedule, a first offense of roughing the passer carries a $21,056 fine. Thomas said Friday that he plans to appeal the fine. Rudolph sustained a concussion following the hit and has remained in the protocol this week.

The second-year quarterback remained motionless for several moments as teammates and the training staff crowded around him. Trainers removed the facemask of Rudolph's helmet and brought out a cart and stretcher, but he walked off the field with a good deal of assistance. Thomas said he reached out to Rudolph via phone calls and texts this week but did not receive a response.

"I wanted to him to know that I didn't do it on purpose," the 30-year-old Thomas said, per ESPN. "That's all I wanted him to know." A six-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time first-team All-Pro in nine years with Seattle, Thomas has recorded 17 tackles and one interception in his first season in Baltimore.
