Several Steelers fined by NFL following Week 3 game vs. the Browns

There were moments in the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns game in Week 2 where it looked as if it was a throwback AFC North game where penalties and injuries dictated the game. While most of these games revolved around the Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, the injuries, and penalties, mounted quickly on Monday Night Football.

Did the NFL notice?

You bet they did, and they levied out numerous fines on both teams for plays which were deemed unnecessary or illegal. None were larger than Steelers running back Jaylen Warren being fined over $48k for lowering his helmet into a Browns defensive back.

This per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, and you can see the video as well below:

A total of five Steelers were fined in the game:

  • Jaylen Warren
  • Kwon Alexander
  • DeMarvin Leal
  • Damontae Kaee
  • Elandon Roberts

This per Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Alexander loses some of his pay check after getting some money back earlier in the week when his fine during the preseason was rescinded by the league after further investigation. It is likely almost all of these players will appeal the fines against them, Jaylen Warren’s agent already stating they plan on doing just that.

The Cleveland Browns weren’t immune to the league’s steep disciplinary action. Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson was fined for three different plays during the game, totaling over $35k.

This per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN:

While the aforementioned plays got very little attention this week, the play which received the most amount of attention was Minkah Fitzpatrick’s hit on Nick Chubb which ended Chubb’s season. Fitzpatrick was not fined for the play, as expected.

The Steelers can now turn the page on Week 2 and look ahead to Week 3 when they travel to Las Vegas to play the Raiders on Sunday Night Football. Be sure to stay tuned to SCN for the latest news and notes surrounding the Steelers as they prepare for the rest of the regular season.
