PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Farrior
has been fined $7,500 by the NFL for making an obscene gesture
toward Cleveland Browns fans on Sunday night.
Farrior made the gesture during the third quarter of the
Steelers' 10-6 win, saying afterward he was upset because fans were
celebrating a minor injury to safety Ryan Clark. Farrior also drew
a taunting penalty. Farrior says he was worried that he was going to be fined more than $7,500.
