Oakland's Wilson fined after incident in Buffalo

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

Raiders safety Gibril Wilson was fined $5,000 by the NFL as a result of play in which he was disqualified from Oakland's 24-23 loss at Buffalo on Sunday.

He was fined for unnecessarily striking an opponent in the head area on a run play. Wilson, in his first season with Oakland after signing as a free agent from the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, threw Buffalo receiver Josh Reed to the ground and slamming his palm against Reed's helmet after a play in which Reed blocked him on a Marshawn Lynch touchdown as Buffalo made a fourth-quarter comeback.

Meanwhile, Jets running back Thomas Jones was not fined for a low block on San Diego defensive lineman Luis Castillo in the Chargers' 48-29 win over New York on Monday night. Castillo lay on the grass for several moments after the hit. He did return to the game. The Chargers sent the play to the NFL for review.
