CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Carolina defensive end Tyler Brayton was fined $15,000 by the NFL for hitting Atlanta's Chris Owens out of bounds in last week's game.
The fine was levied on Friday, but not made public.
Brayton hit Owens in the head after the Falcons player was forced off the field during a punt return last week.
Fox Sports showed a video of the incident from Week 14. The grainy coaches film shows Brayton walking up from the bench area toward the field as Owens is engaged with a Carolina defender. Brayton then drops Owens with what appears to be an elbow to the head.
New York Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was suspended indefinitely and fined $25,000 for sticking out his knee and tripping Miami's Nolan Carroll last weekend.
