Brown not fined for tweeting
By Mike Mazzeo
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants running back/kick returner Andre Brown was not fined by the NFL for in-game tweeting in the locker room after sustaining a concussion in last Sunday’s 41-27 victory over the Cleveland Browns.
“Everything is OK,” Brown tweeted after he was taken into the locker room for evaluation by the team's medical staff.
Brown suffered the injury while returning a kickoff in the first quarter. He will not play in Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers due to the concussion.
NFL rules state that players can only tweet up to 90 minutes before kickoff, and postgame after media interviews.
