NEW YORK (AP) -The NFL fined five players Friday for on-field actions during last weekend's games, including Minnesota's Jared Allen $50,000 for two below-the-knee hits on Houston quarterback Matt Schaub.
Allen also was listed as doubtful on the injury report for the upcoming game against Green Bay.
Jacksonville defensive tackle John Henderson and Cincinnati guard Andrew Whitworth were fined $10,000 each for fighting. Henderson and Whitworth exchanged punches after Henderson knocked off Whitworth's helmet, then appeared to try to gouge his eyes. Both players were penalized and ejected Sunday.
Henderson also got an additional $5,000 fine for illegal hands to the face when he struck Whitworth.
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley was fined $10,000 for slamming Washington quarterback Jason Campbell to the ground in Monday night's game. Campbell banged his head on the turf when hit.
New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck was fined $7,500 for his hit on Dallas quarterback Brooks Bollinger in the fourth quarter last Sunday.
ent on the fine due to his desire to appeal the punishment. Texans coach Gary Kubiak called Allen's hit a cheap shot earlier in the week. Last month, Allen was docked $5,000 by the league for a late hit against Chicago.
Allen was a limited participant in practice, but his sprained right shoulder still has plenty of healing to do. Vikings coach Brad Childress said he wouldn't decide whether Allen would play Sunday until shortly before kickoff.
Cincinnati's Whitworth said Henderson went for his eyes in their confrontation.
``I just pushed him past the quarterback, and he fell to the ground,'' Whitworth said. ``But he held onto my facemask and ripped my helmet off. I turned to go back to the play, and the next thing I knew, I felt him grabbing at my eyeballs. I really didn't know what to do when someone's fingers are trying to dig into my eyes.''
