Fines: Panthers safety Eric Reid fined for late hit

Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid has been hit with another fine.

Per NFL Network's Tom Peliserro, Reid was fined $10,527 for a play that occurred during Carolina's preseason game against the Patriots.

Reid was flagged for unnecessary roughness after a late shot to tight end Benjamin Watson that landed the long-time pro in the concussion protocol.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport added that Reid later reached out to Watson and apologized for the hit. This is Reid's fifth fine since joining the Panthers prior to Week 5 last season.
