The NFL fined Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck $15,750 for an illegal horse collar tackle Sunday on Bears cornerback Kelvin Hayden, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.


Hayden had recovered a fumble by tight endJared Cook in the fourth quarter and was brought down by Hasselbeck at the 4-yard line before he could get into the end zone. The Bears led 44-12 at the time and eventually won the game 51-20.


Also Wednesday, the Titans put starting right guard Leroy Harris on injured reserve with a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.


The Titans also announced other roster moves Wednesday, including signing defensive endJarius Wynn and guard Kyle DeVan. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Wynn played 36 games for Green Bay and had 4½ sacks after being drafted by the Packers in 2009. The Titans are bringing back DeVan, who was signed and waived last week by Tennessee.
