Browns DT Taylor Fined; No Steelers Docked From Sunday’s Game
CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor was fined $7,875 for an unnecessary roughness forearm to Steelers offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum the league announced Friday.
Beachum sustained a concussion from the hit which occurred away from the play.
The fine is the 2nd for Taylor in his career. He was docked $7,500 last season for hitting Chad Henne in a Sept. 25, 2011 game.
The league did not issue any other fines from the game which became very chippy after Steelers offensive lineman Doug Legursky dove at the knees of Browns linebacker Craig Robertson in the second-quarter.
Steelers linebacker James Harrison and Browns defensive tackles Billy Winn and Ahtyba Rubin were flagged for personal fouls in the game.
