NEW YORK (AP) - Atlanta safety William Moore and Miami linebacker Philip Wheeler have been fined more than $20,000 apiece by the NFL for illegal hits during games last weekend.
Moore has been docked $22,050 for hitting Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate in the head and neck area, a blow that drew a penalty in the Falcons' loss last Sunday. It was the fourth time this season that Moore had been fined.
Wheeler was fined $21,000 on Friday for his hit in the head and neck area of Tampa Bay quarterback Mike Glennon.
Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews and Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett also were fined for rough hits on quarterbacks, each docked $15,750.
San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick was fined $7,875 for grabbing the facemask of Carolina's A.J. Klein while he was being sacked.
