NEW YORK (AP) - Minnesota Vikings safety Antone Exum has been fined $22,050 by the NFL for an illegal blindside block against the Green Bay Packers last week.

Exum was penalized for hitting the Packers’ Jarrett Bush during a punt return in the second quarter of the Thursday night game of Oct. 2.

Tampa Bay wide receiver Louis Murphy was docked $11,025 on Friday for using abusive language toward an opponent after the Buccaneers scored a touchdown in a 37-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints last weekend.

Seattle right tackle Justin Britt was fined $8,268 for a late hit against Washington’s Bashaud Breeland, while Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin was fined $5,512 for wearing white cleats while the rest of the team wore black - a violation of league uniform rules.
