Patriots safety Patrick Chung was fined $7,500 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness during Monday's season-opener against the Miami Dolphins, according to a league spokesman.

Chung got flagged for a personal foul with 11:29 to play in the first quarter when he tackled Dolphins running back Reggie Bush by the back of the helmet.
