Blame the internet

The NFL has fined Indianapolis Colts rookie guard Quenton Nelson $26,739 for leading with his helmet on a play that went viral on Twitter.

The Colts had taken the audio of Nelson screaming from another play and added it to the play where the No. 6 pick in this year's draft pulled and flattened Jacksonville Jaguarssafety Barry Church into the ground on a Marlon Mack run. 

The scream came from a play where Nelson was acting as a decoy on an Andrew Luck bootleg.

The team has since taken down the tweet, however there was no penalty on the play. The Colts should pay for the fine. They're the ones who instigated the whole thing.
