The Bills lost to the Browns in Cleveland last Thursday night and two of their players have been fined by the league for their actions during the game.
Defensive back Aaron Williams has been hit with a $21,000 fine for unnecessary roughness. Williams hit Browns wide receiver Davone Bess in the helmet with his helmet in the first quarter of the game. Williams was penalized for the hit during the game as well.
Running back Fred Jackson has been fined $7,875 for unsportsmanlike conduct, an infraction he was also penalized for during the game. Jackson is being disciplined for flipping the ball at Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor on the sideline at the end of a nine-yard gain.
Jackson’s flip looked fairly innocuous, but the league’s made taunting a point of emphasis in recent years and plays like that have been subject to fines in the past. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was fined for something similar last season.
