Divisional Playoffs - New Orleans Saints v Seattle Seahawks

during the NFC Divisional Playoff Game at CenturyLink Field on January 11, 2014 in Seattle, Washington.

Even if it’s less costly than what the Seahawks have to endure, last week’s hit on wide receiver Percy Harvin will still cost the guy who hit him.

The league office tells PFT that Saints safety Rafael Bush was fined $21,000 for his shot to a defenseless Harvin.

The hit, which led to Harvin leaving the field the first time, was also flagged during the game.

But that’s little consolation to the Seahawks, who now have to play for the NFC title without their biggest offseason acquisition, who was ruled out because of his concussion.
