NFL Hands Out Fines After Chargers Game:

From The Star Ledger:

Three Giants players were each fined $5,000 by the NFL for plays dating back to Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers, though the biggest fine that resulted from the game was handed down to Chargers safety Eric Weddle.

Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw was fined $5,000 for a chop block. Cornerback Kevin Dockery was also fined $5,000 for unnecessarily striking his opponent (the play occurred in the third quarter when Dockery ran into Chargers punt returner Darren Sproles). Lastly, linebacker Clint Sintim was fined $5,000 for roughing the passer. He struck the Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers late.

Weddle was fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness. He made helmet-to-helmet contact with Giants tight end Kevin Boss, who was deemed by the league a defenseless receiver on that particular play. Boss was shaken up — having received his second blow to the head in three weeks — but remained in the game.
