Jacobs fined $20K, Wilkerson $10K

BY foxsports • September 9, 2011

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was fined $20,000 and Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson $10,000 by the NFL for fighting during the teams' preseason game last month.

The two were ejected after shoving at each other in the second half of the Jets' 17-3 win on Aug. 29.

After the incident, Wilkerson, the Jets' No. 1 draft pick out of Temple, said Jacobs ''threw a blow'' at him and he retaliated. ''Was it a smart move? No,'' Wilkerson said. ''Do I regret it? No. It's football and I am not going to let somebody try to take advantage of me.''

Jacobs has previously been fined $20,000 by the league for yelling at Eagles fans and $10,000 for throwing his helmet in the stands during a game, both last season.
