NEW YORK (AP) - Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher and Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey were fined $15,750 apiece by the NFL for horse-collar tackles last weekend.
Casey's teammate, safety Bernard Pollard, lost $10,000 for what the NFL said Friday was ''striking an opponent late'' for a hit on St. Louis quarterback Kellen Clemens in the Titans' 28-21 victory over the Rams. There was no penalty called.
Casey was fined for the way he brought down running back Zac Stacy on a tackle that drew a flag for unnecessary roughness.
The NFL docked Fletcher for his horse-collar tackle of running back Danny Woodhead during the fourth quarter of Washington's 30-24 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers.
The league said that Browns receiver Greg Little was not fined after drawing two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Little pulled off the helmet of Ravens safety James Ihedigbo, then taunted the defensive back after a hit near the sideline.
