The NFL on Saturday announced a $10,609 fine for Panthers’ LB Frankie Luvu. The fine came after Luvu was flagged for an unnecessary roughness penalty in last week’s game.

Following Luvus’ penalty, Arizona Cardinals G, Will Hernandez, was ejected from the game due to making contact with an official. However, Hernandez escaped any fines and will be back on the field this weekend.

The 27-year-old offensive lineman leaped to James Conners’ defense after Frankie Luvu shoved Conner in a late hit.

Hernandez has stated he does not regret his actions.

“I take it personally. That’s my boy, that’s my teammate. I’m not going to just sit there and let it happen. Now when it comes to me getting ejected from the game, you guys know how I am. I went over there to get my teammate, bumped into the ref unintentionally, things happened the way it happened. Can’t control it, can’t do anything. As bad as I wanted to stay in there with the guys and finish the game, couldn’t have done anything about it”

The Cardinals desperately need Hernandez to step-up big time in Week Five. Arizona will be without three offensive linemen, including Max Garcia, Justin Pugh, and Rodney Hudson.
