NEW YORK The St. Louis Rams and Carolina Panthers drew a total of $47,250 in fines from the NFL for their chippy game last Sunday.
Rams defensive lineman Chris Long received the biggest fine Friday, $15,750 for throwing a punch during a skirmish in St. Louis' loss. Long was penalized and ejected after he was caught swinging his right hand at Panthers guard Chris Scott as players from both sides were pushing and shoving.
A pair of receivers Carolina's Steve Smith and St. Louis' Brian Quick were fined $7,875 for striking an opponent in the face. Also docked $7,875 were Rams guard Harvey Dahl for a late hit and Panthers safety Mike Mitchell for taunting.
Other players had minor fines to round out the total.
In other games, four players were fined $15,750 for roughing the passer: Washington linebacker Brian Orakpo, Miami linebacker Jelani Jenkins, Houston defensive end Jared Crick and Tennessee linebacker Akeem Ayers.
New England rookie cornerback Logan Ryan was fined $10,000 for grabbing at his groin at the end of an interception return against the New York Jets. Ryan, playing for the injured Aqib Talib, picked off Geno Smith late in the first quarter and returned the ball 79 yards for a touchdown. As he reached the end zone, he fell backward and reached for his groin.
Denver defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson was docked $10,000 for hitting Indianapolis offensive lineman Samson Satele during the Colts' victory. Vickerson was not penalized for the play in which he appeared to punch at Satele's right knee, sending the center to the sideline for the rest of the game.
