NFL fines Steelers' Heyward for honoring late father on eye black

BY Jimmy Traina • October 14, 2015

The NFL's no-tolerance policy when it comes to players wearing anything but their standard uniform has struck again.

No, we're not even talking about the league shooting down DeAngelo Williams' request to wear pink all season to honor is mother who passed away from breast cancer.

The league actually went after another Steelers player.

Defensive end Cam Heyward says he was fined for honoring his father, former NFL running back, Craig "Iron Head" Heyward, last Sunday against the Chargers.

Heyward's crime? Wearing the words "Iron" and "Head" on each of his eye-black strips.
