Lynch nets fine for fin­ger flip

Vancouver Sun - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK Mar­shawn Lynch’s re­turn to the NFL came with a price.

The Oakland Raiders run­ning back was fined $12,154 by the league for flip­ping the mid­dle fin­ger on both hands last Sun­day in the fourth quar­ter of the team’s 26-16 vic­tory at Ten­nessee. Lynch, who was re­tired last sea­son, ran for 76 yards on 18 car­ries and caught a 16-yard pass.

Three Pitts­burgh play­ers — line­backer Ryan Shazier, cor­ner­back Wil­liam Gay and safety J.J. Wil­cox — were each fined $24,309 for un­nec­es­sary rough­ness against Cleve­land.

New Or­leans safety Kenny Vac­caro and line­backer Alex An­za­lone were also docked $24,309 for hits to the head, as was the Los An­ge­les Charg­ers’ Melvin In­gram.

Fined $9,115 on Fri­day were: San Fran­cisco’s Jaquiski Tartt, the New York Jets’ Dar­ron Lee, Detroit’s Jar­rad Davis and Green Bay’s Martel­lus Bennett — all for un­nec­es­sary rough­ness — and Min­nesota’s Lin­val Joseph (face mask).
