Michael Brockers Injury: Ramon Harewood Fined By NFL

The NFL fined Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Ramon Harewood $8,000 on Thursday for an illegal block on St. Louis Rams rookie defensive tackle Michael Brockers that caused Brockers to suffer a right high ankle sprain.

Harewood is appealing the fine, according to the Baltimore Sun. He was not penalized on the play, but the league office reviewed the penalty after the Aug. 31, 2012, game.

From the Sun:

"I did nothing wrong," Harewood said. "I watched the play over and over. I even asked [Pro Bowl defensive tackle] Haloti Ngata if he would call that and he said, 'No.' I'm appealing it. It's a lot of money. They better take off the whole fine."

Brockers was one of three defensive tackles to miss practice on Wednesday. The Rams only have six defensive tackles on their roster.

Matt Conrath and Darell Scott both missed practice on Wednesday as the Rams prepare for their season opener Sunday against the Detroit Lions. Conrath told the Associated Press he had not been ruled out for the game against Detroit.

The Rams kick off against the Lions on Sunday at 12 p.m. CT on Fox.
