Redskins, Bills each fined $20K
Washington was fined for not properly updating media on Griffin's status during the Oct. 7 game against Atlanta after he left with a head injury that turned out to be a mild concussion. Coach Mike Shanahan had described Griffin as being "shaken up."
The Bills failed to list Williams on the injury report while he was being treated for a sprained left wrist. Williams said Oct. 3 that the wrist had been bothering him and was limiting his effectiveness. The league said he should have been on the injury report; he has been the past two weeks.
Coples, the Jets' 2012 first-round pick, was fined $10,000 for grabbing the face mask of Luck, the No. 1 overall selection, in New York's 35-9 win. Maybin was fined $7,875 for "unnecessarily" striking Luck with his elbow after blocking him during an interception return by Antonio Cromartie. The penalty wiped out Cromartie's touchdown.
Detroit defensive end Lawrence Jackson was fined $15,750 for hitting Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick below the knees in the Lions' 26-23 overtime victory. Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson was fined $10,000 for simulating shooting a gun during a touchdown celebration.
