Sanchez Fined 5K For Hitting Vilma

QB Mark Sanchez has been fined $5,000 for an illegal hit on LB Jonathan Vilma during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Sanchez threw a pass that was intercepted by S Darren Sharper who returned it 99 yards for a touchdown. The Jets quarterback attempted to give chase and dived at the legs of Vilma, who was blocking for Sharper. Sanchez was flagged for a personal foul.

In the season opener against the Texans, Sanchez was penalized for a similar infraction while giving chase on a long fumble return for a touchdown.

Sanchez called Vilma yesterday and apologized for his cheap shot.
