Mundy's hit on Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey resulted in his fine. Heyward-Bey was taken from the field on a stretcher and hospitalized with a concussion.
Mundy is appealing a $10,000 fine for a late hit on Oakland wide receiver Johnnie Lee Higgins that led to the Raiders' winning touchdown on Dec. 6.|||||||
Mundy drew an 11-yard unnecessary roughness penalty for slamming into Higgins on an incomplete pass during Oakland's final drive. The penalty gave Oakland a first down at the Pittsburgh 11 with 21 seconds remaining. One play later, Bruce Gradkowski threw a touchdown pass to Louis Murphy for a 27-24 victory. Mundy contends it wasn't a helmet-to-helmet hit, as the NFL states in the letter notifying him of the fine.
