Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth faces a $5,000 fine for unnecessarily diving into Rams quarterback Marc Bulger in Week 2.

The play did not draw a penalty, but I thought it should have and the Rams presumably submitted this play for review.

TV replays showed Bulger wincing as Haynesworth launched himself at the quarterback following a scramble. Bulger was late to slide on the play, but the league determined Haynesworth still could have avoided making such violent contact.
