DT Jenkins Fined $7,500 for Hit on Manning

As if losing to the Colts was not bad enough, one Panther is going to be a little light in the pocketbook when his next check comes.  Defensive tackle Kris Jenkins was hit with a $7500 fine today by the league for a late hit in last Sunday’s loss to the Colts.  The hit came in the third quarter when Jenkins was called for a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty for picking up QB Peyton Manning and driving his right shoulder into the turf after the quarterback had thrown a pass late in the third quarter.  Manning may have lost his senses for a few moments, as he called a timeout after the play and came to the sideline for smelling salts.  It’s not known if Jenkins will appeal the fine.
