Washington cornerback Josh Norman didn’t draw any penalties for hits on his rival, Giants receiver Odell Beckham, during their much-anticipated meeting on Sunday. But Norman was penalized and fined for a hit on another Giants receiver.
Norman was fined $48,620 for a hit on Giants receiver Sterling Shepard, the NFL confirmed today.
The hit drew an unnecessary roughness flag against Norman. The fine is more than players usually get for unnecessary roughness, but Norman is considered a repeat offender after two fines for his actions when he played against the Giants last year.
Norman will see the Giants again on New Year’s Day, in Week 17.
