NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL has fined three players for on-field actions during last weekend's games. Jacksonville defensive tackle John Henderson and Cincinnati guard Andrew Whitworth have been hit with $10,000 fines for the fight they had on Sunday. They exchanged punches after Henderson
knocked off Whitworth's helmet, then appeared to try to gouge his
eyes.

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck was fined $7,500 by the NFL for his hit on Dallas quarterback Brooks Bollinger. Tuck was called for roughing the passer in the fourth quarter last Sunday. The league determined that Tuck unnecessarily drove Bollinger to the ground and fell with his full body weight on the quarterback.
