NEW YORK — Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed was fined $55,000 by the NFL for his high hit on the New York Giants’ Victor Cruz last weekend. Reed struck the wide receiver in the head and neck area, and was penalized for the hit in the game. He had a one-game suspension for several helmet-to-helmet hits reduced to a $50,000 fine last month. Ravens coach John Harbaugh was asked if Reed’s punishment fit the penalty he was called for.

Reed’s shoulder then made contact with Cruz’s facemask, which drew the 15-yard penalty. “The system is not perfect, although the motivation is correct and the idea is right,” Harbaugh said. “It’s still a work in progress.
