CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The NFL has fined Carolina Panthers safety Sherrod Martin $5,000 for his hit that gave New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss a concussion.

The league ruled Friday that while Martin used his shoulder and not his head last Sunday, he hit a defenseless player in the head area, which has become a point of emphasis. Boss has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Indianapolis.

Boss was hurt on the opening drive when Martin hit him after he failed to make a catch. Giants coach Tom Coughlin was upset a penalty was not called on the play.
