49ers running back Carlos Hyde has been fined $9,115 for the taunting penalty he was assessed in last week’s loss to the Cardinals, USA Today reported.
Hyde flexed at a group of Cardinals players after picking up a first down. Though it appeared Cardinals cornerback Marcus Cooper initiated the post-play conversation, Hyde was flagged then fined for his reaction.
The 15-yard penalty for taunting came late in the second quarter. Three plays later Blaine Gabbert was intercepted by Calais Campbell, and on the next play Larry Fitzgerald caught a touchdown pass from Drew Stanton to tie the game.
