Steeler fined for playing soccer

  • Print

PITTSBURGH -- The NFL has levied $50,000 in fines to the Pittsburgh Steelers and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders for faking an injury during an Oct. 21 game in Cincinnati.

Sanders was fined $15,000 and the organization $35,000. Sanders grabbed the back of his leg and collapsed to the ground during the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh's 24-17 win.

NFL executive vice-president of football operations Ray Anderson handed out the discipline after meeting with Sanders last week.

Sanders initially played coy in public comments about the incident, but in recent weeks has said the matter was being handled internally.
