NEW YORK (AP) - Marshawn Lynch’s return to the NFL came with a price.

The Oakland Raiders running back was fined $12,154 by the league for flipping the middle finger on both hands last Sunday in the fourth quarter of the team’s 26-16 victory at Tennessee. Lynch, who was retired last season, ran for 76 yards on 18 carries and caught a 16-yard pass.

Three Pittsburgh players - linebacker Ryan Shazier, cornerback William Gay and safety J.J. Wilcox - were each fined $24,309 for unnecessary roughness against Cleveland.
