Knighton Hit jaguars
NEW YORK -

Jacksonville defensive tackle Terrance Knighton has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for making helmet-to-helmet contact with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who was defenseless at the time.
   
The hit came in Indianapolis' victory Nov. 8 at Jacksonville and negated an interception by Aaron Ross.
   
Jaguars safety Dawan Landry was fined $10,000 for a fourth-quarter hit on Luck that made contact to the head and neck area after Luck declared himself down by sliding feet first.
