Ray Lewis will likely be fined

The NFL is expected to hand down a series of fines to linebacker James Harrison and safety Ryan Clark of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis for questionable hits delivered during Sunday night's game between the teams, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Lewis knocked Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward out of the game in the second quarter with his hit, which was not flagged. Ward left with concussion-like symptoms after the helmet-to-helmet hit. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin called the injury "minor."

The Ravens won Sunday night's hard-hitting game on a late touchdown pass by Joe Flacco to sweep the season series from Pittsburgh.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday said he didn't "want get into that conversation right now" when asked about the Clark and Lewis' hits that drew penalties.

"I mean, it's tough. There's no doubt about it, it's tough. It's fast and it's physical and all that, but the rules are in place for a reason, and that's the way it works," he said, according to The Baltimore Sun.
