NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says New York Jets right guard Willie Colon has been fined $34,125 by the NFL for his actions during a sideline skirmish at New England last Thursday.
Colon revealed he had been notified by the league that he had been fined Thursday, saying only that it was for ``way more than I expected,'' and added that he will appeal.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league had not announced the amount of the fine. The NFL usually announces fines for the previous week on Fridays.
Colon made contact with an official and threw a punch after Jets center Nick Mangold set off a shoving match when he hit the Patriots' Aqib Talib low after an interception.
