NEW YORK (AP) -The NFL fined four players Friday for on-field actions during last weekend's games, including Jacksonville's John Henderson and Cincinnati's Andrew Whitworth for fighting.
Jaguars defensive tackle Henderson and Bengals guard 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. They were fined $10,000 apiece on Friday.
Henderson also got an additional $5,000 fine for illegal hands to the face when he struck Whitworth.
``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.''
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.
Tuck was called for roughing the passer in the fourth quarter last Sunday. The league determined that Tuck unnecessarily drove Bollinger to the ground. Tuck fell with his full body weight on the quarterback.
