Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran afoul of the NFL’s emphasis on taunting penalties last weekend and he heard from the league about his penalty this week.
Edwards-Helaire was flagged for pointing at Cowboys linebacker Luke Gifford as he made his way into the end zone for a touchdown. The foul didn’t take the touchdown off the board and the Chiefs’ Harrison Butker made a longer extra point one play later.
The NFL fined Edwards-Helaire $10,300 for unsportsmanlike conduct in response to the penalty.
Chiefs cornerback Rashad Fenton was also fined $4,934 for his actions in a sideline scrap with Cowboys defensive back C.J. Godwin on a punt.
