Harry Douglas said NFL has not fined him for block on Chris Harris

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Harry Douglas said Wednesday that the NFL has not levied a fine against him for his cut block on Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris, Jr., in Sunday’s 13-10 Titans’ victory.

The block, though on the opposite side of the field from where the play was run, was a legal hit, something Douglas maintained after the game.

However, Harris was injured on the play and briefly left the game for one play. While Harris was being tended to, Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib began jawing at Douglas, accusing him of a dirty hit.

On the next play from scrimmage, Talib went after Douglas, and the fight spilled over to the Titans’ sideline where Talib was pulled away by linebacker Avery Williamson and tossed to the ground.

Other than to confirming that the NFL had not levied a fine against him for the play, Douglas declined comment, as he did not want to discuss the incident any further.

After the game, Talib threatened Douglas by saying he would “beat his (expletive)” when he saw him next.

Harris had claimed that the hit was illegal and several members of the Broncos were upset over the block.

Also, Williamson indicated that he had not been fined for pulling Talib away and throwing him to the ground.
