The NFL has levied $5,000 fines against Rams G Richie Incognito and Rams WR Isaac Bruce for their actions following teammate Steve Jackson’s touchdown run against Seattle on Sunday. Both were fined for unnecessary roughness. Only Incognito drew a penalty during the game. Incognito got into a shoving match in defense of Jackson, whose helmet came off after the touchdown. Bruce jumped onto the backs of players while the mini-fracas was ongoing.

The league did not fine Seahawks FS Ken Hamlin, whose actions appeared to contribute to Jackson losing his helmet.

    If Jackson got a haircut, maybe his helmet wouldn’t pop off every time he got hit. It just doesn’t fit right with all that hair.

    I am surprised they fined Bruce. It looked like Bruce was trying to push the pile into the endzone. I dont think that was the actions of a guy taking a cheap shot.

    Bruce jumped on top of the pile after the TD not into the pile like someone trying to push into the endzone. Besides the best way to move a pile is a low center of gravity and leverage, not leaving your feet and flying into the to of the pile.

    Dion, Jackson was already 2-3 yds in the Endzone and on the ground when he did his leap– good 3-4 seconds after the officials signaled TD– he got what he earned on that play

    There should have been a fine on Kelly Jennings for the most embarrassing ATTEMPTED tackle on a running back by an NFL defensive player of all time.
