Fines for Atogwe, others from Week 14
By Mike Sando
Oshiomogho Atogwe drew a $5,000 fine from the NFL for the big hit on New Orleans' Reggie Bush.
The league determined the St. Louis Rams' safety grabbed Bush by the helmet when attempting to tackle him.
The Denver Broncos' Kevin Vickerson ($7,500 for a horse collar tackle) and Syd'Quan Thompson ($5,000 for a late hit) drew fines for plays made during their game against the Arizona Cardinals.
I asked the NFL for fine information stemming from Justin Smith's disqualification Thursday night. There was nothing to report at this time. Officials flagged the San Francisco 49ers' defensive end for making contact with a game official.
