NFL fines Ravens’ Oher $5K for tweet

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.
