In his first game of the season, Redskins defensive end Jeremy Jarmon may have been a bit too excited to finally get on the field.â†µ
Jarmon sat out the first four games of the season before he was deemed fully recovered from the anterior cruciate ligament injury he suffered last year.â†µ
He didn't see much playing time on Sunday against the Packers, and his name didn't even show up in the box score since he didn't record a tackle. But Jarmon's presence was felt. His numbers weren't great, but there's one number that stands out: 5,000.â†µ
That's the amount of money Jarmon was fined for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Aaron Rodgers that apparently gave the quarterback a concussion, according to Rick Maese of the Washington Post. Jarmon wasn't flagged on the play. Any Redskins fan would tell you that the fine was well worth it, because that hit forced a poor throw by Rodgers that was intercepted by LaRon Landry.â†µ
Welcome back, Jeremy. Now pay up.
