Ochocinco, Bart Scott fined for uniform violations
Question of the Day
Ochocinco wore gold cleats during the Bengals’ 27-21 loss at Pittsburgh on Monday night. He was previously fined $25,000 for violating the league’s social media policy.
Minnesota wide receiver Bernard Berrian was also fined $5,000 for wearing yellow cleats during the Vikings’ 27-24 overtime victory over Arizona last Sunday.
Baltimore defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was docked $10,000 for hitting Miami quarterback Chad Henne “unnecessarily” with the crown of his helmet. Ngata was also penalized for roughing the passer on the play Sunday.
Indianapolis’ Gary Brackett also received a $10,000 fine for a similar play in which he was penalized after slamming into Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick’s chest with his helmet.
The league also confirmed that Carolina’s Jon Beason was docked $10,000 for unnecessary roughness after hitting New Orleans Marques Colston _ whom the league deemed a “defenseless player” _ in the head and neck area. Beason was previously fined for unnecessary roughness last season.
Beason said Thursday that the fine was unwarranted and he vowed to appeal.
