By Mike Reiss
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Linebacker Jerod Mayo was fined $21,000 for unnecessary roughness in last Sunday's 20-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
The fine was for striking a defenseless receiver (Early Doucet) in the head and neck area. Mayo was not penalized on the play.
Meanwhile, safety Steve Gregory was fined $7,875 for a late hit on tight end Todd Heap.
Gregory was penalized on the play, in which linebacker Brandon Spikes also was penalized for roughing the passer (but not fined).
