The NFL has fined Houston Texans linebacker Tim Dobbins $30k for his hit on Jay Cutler last Sunday even though he claimed that the quarterback ran into him, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.
Dobbins received an unnecessary roughness penalty on the hit in the second quarter that eventually forced Cutler to leave the game.
Cutler left the game after completing 7-of-14 passes for 40 yards and rushing three times for 37 yards. The Bears fell to the Texans, 13-6, which snapped Chicago's six-game winning streak.
Jason Campbell was 11-of-19 passing for 94 yards and rushed once for five yards in place of Cutler on Sunday.
Campbell is expected to start next Monday versus the San Francisco 49ers if Cutler is not cleared to play. The Bears signed veteran Josh McCown on Tuesday to backup Campbell.
Cutler is completing 59.2 percent of his passes this season and has thrown for 1,814 yards and 12 touchdowns. The concussion is the sixth of his career.
