49ers’ Jimmie Ward and Fred Warner fined a total of $21,450 for plays vs. Saints

Nov 21, 2020 at 12:51 PM--


Two San Francisco 49ers players were fined as a result of plays from last weekend's loss against the New Orleans Saints, according to a report from NBC Sports Bay Area.

Safety Jimmie Ward was fined $15,000 for unnecessary roughness on his hit on Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith, who suffered a concussion.

The league also fined linebacker Fred Warner $6,450 for his grab at the face mask of wide receiver Deonte Harris.


The good news is that the NFL didn't fine defensive end Kentavius Street for what should have been credited as a sack against Saints quarterback Drew Brees. The hit ended up knocking Brees out of the game, and the quarterback was later diagnosed with a collapsed lung and fractured ribs. Instead of earning his first NFL sack, Street was flagged with a roughing-the-passer penalty.


On Friday, the Saints placed Brees on injured reserve, and the quarterback will miss at least the next three games.


The lack of a fine should not come as a surprise. General manager John Lynch said on Thursday while discussing how disappointed he was that a penalty was called on the play that the league informed him that his defender would not be fined.

"That was his first career sack," Lynch said during a KNBR interview, "and it got taken from him on something that I don't think was a penalty, and I think we can all agree to that now. And to do it against a legend like Drew Brees, that stunk."

Fred Warner on 49ers-Cowboys: 'It's going to be a battle'

Everyone is getting pretty excited for Sunday's playoff clash between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys. Players on both teams are too young to know what this rivalry once meant to fans. However, they know that one team's season will end this weekend. Many are saying that no team—not even the NFC East champions—wants to face the 49ers right now. They could be among the playoffs' most dangerous teams. "They're very confident," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Tuesday. "They've won some big games. They've won it against some good teams. They play in a tough division over there. … They'll be a real, real mess to deal with out here Sunday." Star linebacker Fred Warner knows none of that matters regarding Sunday's game. The

With an impressive Sunday afternoon 27-24 win against the Los Angeles Rams, it seems like the 49ers are reaching the expectations fans had for the team before the season. Sitting at a 10-7 record with the 6th seed in the NFC, they now look to face the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday. With the 49ers being as dangerous as teams come in the NFL currently, it's hard to remember that, just prior to the season, San Francisco went through an overhaul in terms of organization on the coaching and leadership staff. Former pass-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and, most importantly, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh both departed for the Jets, leaving huge vacancies to fill during the offseason. Fortunately, the Niners elevated Mike McDaniel to fill an offensive coordinator role and former
