NEW YORK -- Tennessee Titans safety Michael Griffin has been fined $21,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Vikings wide receiver Michael Jenkins.

The league said Friday that Griffin committed unnecessary roughness against a defenseless player.

Fined $15,750 by the league were Green Bay linebacker Nick Perry, Seattle defensive end Chris Clemons, St. Louis defensive end Robert Quinn and San Diego linebacker Melvin Ingram.

Jets guard Matt Slauson was docked $10,000 for his illegal block on Texans linebacker Brian Cushing that tore ligaments in Cushing's left knee, sidelining him for the season.
