NEW YORK (AP) Marshawn Lynch’s return to the NFL came with a price.

The Oakland Raiders running back was fined $12,154 by the league for flipping the middle finger on both hands last Sunday in the fourth quarter of the team’s 26-16 victory at Tennessee. Lynch, who was retired last season, ran for 76 yards on 18 carries and caught a 16-yard pass.

Three Pittsburgh players – linebacker Ryan Shazier, cornerback William Gay and safety J.J. Wilcox – were each fined $24,309 for unnecessary roughness against Cleveland.

New Orleans safety Kenny Vaccaro and linebacker Alex Anzalone were also docked $24,309 for hits to the head, as was the Los Angeles Chargers’ Melvin Ingram.

Fined $9,115 on Friday were: San Francisco’s Jaquiski Tartt, the New York Jets’ Darron Lee, Detroit’s Jarrad Davis and Green Bay’s Martellus Bennett – all for unnecessary roughness – and Minnesota’s Linval Joseph (facemask).
