    Dolphins safety Tyrone Culver nervously awaited to hear from the NFL this week about his hit on Bills receiver Stevie Johnson last Sunday that resulted in a 15-yard personal foul. Culver finally heard from the league, and the news wasn’t good. Culver, a fifth-year veteran who is making $700,000 this year, was fined $20,000 for striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area, according to a league spokesman. The fine for most unnecessary roughness penalties is $15,000 – safety Yeremiah Bell has been fined that amount two different times this year – but the league office determined that Culver’s hit was especially egregious. Culver said on Monday that there was no intent to injure Johnson or deliver a dirty hit. “I’m just going out there and playing aggressive,†he said. “You never want to see anybody get hurt.â€
