Quinn says he was fined

Browns quarterback Brady Quinn said he was fined for his hit on Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs Monday night, but would not disclose the amount Wednesday.

''I mean, obviously, I got fined for it. That's the extent I'm going to share,'' Quinn said. ''I'm not going to disclose the amount, but it's a good amount.''

Browns defensive end Corey Williams was fined $7,500 for his hit on Bills quarterback Trent Edwards earlier this season, even though Williams said his momentum carried him into Edwards. Quinn could have been docked at least $10,000.

Quinn was called for a personal foul on the play and the referee cited a ''low blow.'' Quinn had just thrown the second of two third-quarter interceptions, which set up nine Baltimore points in the Browns' 16-0 loss.

Quinn was apologetic again Wednesday and said he was trying to tackle cornerback Chris Carr, who intercepted the pass. But he said he had not had time to speak to Suggs.

Quinn said he had trained with Suggs in the off-season in Phoenix.

Asked how the play will affect him mentally, Quinn said, ''I'm not going to lie to you. Definitely, seeing someone who I've known off the field happen like that to him, yeah, it affects you.

''You were the result of hurting someone. I'm never out there to do that. It's tough to shake off,
probably more than anything else in that game.''
