Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry has been slapped with a fine from the National Football League for an illegal hit on Buffalo Bills safety, Aaron Williams.

Landry was fined $24,309 for an illegal crackback hit on Williams in Miami's win over the Bills on Sunday.
 
Landry was flagged 15-yards for an unnecessary roughness penalty on the play.

Williams has yet to practice this week with a neck injury and continues to be evaluated by the Bills' medical staff. In seven games played this season, Williams has 20 combined total tackles.

At practice on Thursday, head coach Rex Ryan told the media that there is some concern that this latest neck injury for Williams could be a long-term issue.

In addition, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Williams' father has told the Associated Press that Aaron intends on waiting until the end of the 2016 season to determine his playing future in the NFL.
 
Williams suffered a neck injury in Week 2 of the 2015 season against the New England Patriots where he was carted off the field. Williams tried to make a return three weeks later until he experienced numbness in his left arm late in the game. Williams would go on injured reserve three days later, and later had surgery to repair his injured neck.
