Broncos receiver Brandon Stokley may have barely grazed a game official’s finger, but rules are rules.
Any contact with an official incurs an immediate ejection, plus a standard $25,000 fine. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Stokley has learned he will indeed be fined 25 large.
Stokley was arguing a pass interference call. As he started to walk away from the official, he swung his arm wildly and hit the official’s fingers.
It was a costly moment for the Broncos, who were already down two wide receivers before Stokley was thrown out of the game.
