Eagles QB Foles fined $10K for illegal block

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was fined $10,000 by the NFL on Friday for an illegal peel-back block on Minnesota's Erin Henderson during the Eagles' loss Sunday.

Foles went down low at Henderson's knees, drawing a penalty and negating DeSean Jackson's 18-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Arizona's Marcus Benard was fined $15,750 for roughing the passer on a hit on Tennessee's Ryan Fitzpatrick. Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington was also docked $5,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Also in that game, Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley was fined $10,000 for hitting Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer in the knee area.

Fined $7,875 by the NFL were: Indianapolis' Gosder Cherilus (for punching Houston's J.J. Watt), Cincinnati's Dre Kirkpatrick (facemask), Baltimore's Matt Elam (hitting a quarterback who slid feet-first) and St. Louis' Eugene Sims (for a hit on New Orleans' Darren Sproles).
