Washington Redskins cornerback E.J. Biggers was fined $21,000 for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson on Sunday.

Biggers, who injured his right knee on the play, made contact with Jackson on the left sideline with 11:20 remaining in the first quarter.

The league also fined Eagles defensive end Fletcher Cox $7,875 after he was called for roughing the passer on the Redskins’ first play from scrimmage.

Redskins inside linebacker Perry Riley, called for a horse-collar tackle on running back LeSean McCoy, was not fined. The league also did not fine McCoy for a taunting Redskins free safety Brandon Meriweather.

Meriweather was fined $42,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit in Week 2, but he said Friday he has not yet heard a resolution on his appeal.
