NEW YORK (AP) - Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed, Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch and Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy each have been fined $21,000 by the NFL for flagrant hits.

Reed was fined for striking defenseless Patriots receiver Deion Branch in the head and neck area last Sunday night. Tulloch was docked for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Tennessee tight end Craig Stevens. Mundy's hit on Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey resulted in his fine.

Heyward-Bey was taken from the field on a stretcher and hospitalized with a concussion.

Four players were fined 15,750 Friday by the league: Denver LB Von Miller, Cincinnati defensive back Adam Jones, Eagles defensive end Jason Babin, and Titans DE Scott Solomon.
