Jets’ Skrine fined $24K by NFL, Giants’ Engram $12K
NEW YORK (AP) New York Jets cornerback Buster Skrine has been fined $24,309 by the NFL for a helmet hit last week at Oakland.
Skrine was called for unnecessary roughness for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Raiders running back DeAndre Washington in the Jets’ 42-20 loss.
The NFL also fined Giants rookie tight end Evan Engram $12,154 for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he received after celebrating his first career touchdown with a questionable gesture. While dancing in the end zone following an 18-yard reception to start the second quarter, Engram appeared to reach down at his crotch – Michael Jackson-style – with his left hand.
The penalty cost the Giants, who lost 24-10, 15 yards on the ensuing kickoff.
