Moore was handed a 15-yard personal foul penalty for the ferocious hit last Saturday after Jones was knocked from the field as he reached, and missed, a pass.
The hit sparked brief confrontations on the field, while Jones lay flattened on the sideline, before the unrest died down. Jones later walked to the locker room of his own volition.
Moore was pulled from the game by his coaches following the incident, but was not ejected.
His fine followed other equal punishments for hard preseason hits. Buccaneers linebacker Mason Foster, Jaguars linebacker Mike Lockley and Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh were among the players fined.
