NFL hands $20K fines to Jacobs, Kelly

BY foxsports • November 26, 2010

New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs and Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly each have been fined $20,000 by the NFL.

Jacobs was fined for unsportsmanlike conduct toward fans before last Sunday's loss at Philadelphia. It was his second such violation this year; he was fined $10,000 for throwing his helmet into the stands in Indianapolis during a defeat in Week 2.

Jacobs is expected to appeal the fine.

Kelly was fined $20,000 for unnecessary roughness on a special teams play when he unnecessarily struck a Pittsburgh Steelers player in the head area. He was docked $5,000 in 2008 for a late shove of an opponent in a loss to San Diego.
