Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for violating the league's social media policy.

The NFL announced the fine Friday.

Oher issued an update on his Twitter account during a 17-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers about his sprained knee, which is against the NFL's rules.

The lineman had expected to be fined.

Oher deleted the Tweet, but it was passed on several times. The league monitors players' Twitter accounts.
