Mikell fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness
Whether he appeals the NFL's $7,500 fine for unnecessary roughness, his horse collar tackle of Skins running back Clinton Portis notwithstanding, is another matter.
'Horse collar tackle' popped out of the mouths of almost every reporter in the press box at the Linc before the penalty flags came out for the illegal tackle on the first series of the game last Sunday.
Obvious as it was Mikell would have virtually no chance winning the appeal. It's unlikely the fine even would be reduced.
Worse he was run over just a few plays later on a touchdown run by Ryan Torrain.
It might be better just to let this one go.
