The NFL fined Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue $18,231 for unnecessary roughness.
It was Ngakoue’s third fine this season. He was fined $24,309 for a roughing-the-passer penalty on a hit on Deshaun Watson in the season opener. And the league docked him $30,387 for contact with an official in a December 24 game against the 49ers.
His latest fine comes for hitting Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who was sliding feet first. Officials flagged Ngakoue for the second-quarter hit, and the Bills scored their only points of the game on the drive.
