Steelers assistant coaches Joey Porter and Mike Munchak weren’t the only people to receive fines for their conduct during last Saturday night’s Steelers win in Cincinnati.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Bengals cornerback Adam Jones has been fined $28,940 for unsportsmanlike conduct and making contact with an official in the fourth quarter of the game. Jones bumped field judge Buddy Horton while Horton was between him and Porter in the aftermath of Vontaze Burfict’s penalty for hitting Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in the head. Jones was penalized at the time and the 15 yards marked off against the Bengals allowed Chris Boswell to take a shorter field goal to win the game.
Burfict was suspended for the first three games of next season this week as a result of repeated violations of player safety rules, including the hit on Brown.
In addition to Jones’ fine, Steelers guard Ramon Foster has been fined $17,363 after drawing a penalty for unnecessary roughness early in the game. Bengals defensive linemen Domata Peko and Wallace Gilberry were each fined $8,681 for unnecessary roughness as well.
