Steelers free safety Ryan Clark will not be fined for a hit in last Sunday's game that drew a penalty for unnecessary roughness.

Clark got flagged for a helmet to helmet hit on Braylon Edwards though replays showed that he had, in fact, hit the New York Jets wide receiver in the chest after a 15-yard catch.

The Jets scored a touchdown four plays after the penalty, and they went on to beat the Steelers 22-17.

Clark spoke out about the penalty earlier this week and said it did not warrant a fine.

The Steelers (11-4) are off today following a 27-3 win against the Carolina Panthers at Heinz Field.
They win the AFC North and clinch the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs if the Ravens lose to the Browns Sunday in Cleveland.
