NEW YORK —

Tennessee Titans safety Michael Griffin has been fined $21,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Vikings wide receiver Michael Jenkins.

The league says Friday that Griffin committed unnecessary roughness against a defenseless player.

Fined $15,750 by the league were Green Bay linebacker Nick Perry, Seattle defensive end Chris Clemons, St. Louis defensive end Robert Quinn and San Diego linebacker Melvin Ingram.

Perry was docked for striking Colts quarterback Andrew Luck in the neck and head area. Clemons unnecessarily drove Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to the ground. Quinn made helmet-to-helmet contact against Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb. Ingram struck Saints QB Drew Brees in the head and neck area and drove him to the ground.

Jets guard Matt Slauson was docked $10,000 for his illegal block on Texans linebacker Brian Cushing that tore ligaments in Cushing's left knee, sidelining him for the season.

Colts defensive end Cory Redding was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness against Packers running back Cedric Benson. Titans DT Sen'Derrick Marks was docked $7,875 for unnecessary roughness on a late hit against Minnesota. Rams DT Jermelle Cudjo was fined $7,875 for roughing the passer; he grabbed Kolb by the facemask in an attempt to tackle him and ripped off his helmet.
