New England Patriots safety Duron Harmon has been fined $ 26,739 for his hit on Houston Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins in Week 1, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Harmon was flagged for unnecessary roughness on a helmet-to-helmet hit, which occurred with 38 seconds remaining in the Patriots’ 27-20 victory.

Hopkins did not sustain any sort of head injury from the hit. He is, however, listed as questionable for Week 2 due to a foot injury.

Harmon finished the game with three combined tackles.

The 6’1″, 205-pound defensive back is coming off a season in which he recorded 23 combined tackles, four interceptions and three passes defended. He sits behind veteran safety Patrick Chung on the team’s depth chart.

A third-round pick in 2013, Harmon is in his sixth season in the NFL, all with the Patriots. He signed a four-year, $ 20 million contract back in March 2017 to remain with New England.
