Biggs: Eagles' Harris fined $7,500

Philadelphia Eagles rookie safety Macho Harris was fined $7,500 by the NFL for a hit on Denver Broncos tight end Tony Scheffler in their game Sunday.

Harris was called for unnecessary roughness on the play, an Asante Samuel interception, and the penalty negated a 40-yard return and backed the Eagles up on their own 1-yard line. They led 27-10 at the time, and the Broncos rallied from there to tie the game.

"I didn't even read it," Harris told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I just checked the amount. Hopfeully, I get to appeal it."

Andy Reid wasn’t happy with the call and told reporters “let’s move on” when it was brought up.
