NEW YORK (AP) The NFL has been fined Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict $112,000 for multiple unnecessary roughness penalties in Cincinnati's loss to Pittsburgh last Sunday.
The third-quarter plays involved Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back James Conner. Burfict, who has been fined 11 times for more than $315,000 during his seven-year NFL career, was suspended for four games to begin this season for violating the league's policy on performance enhancers.
Burfict was fined for a helmet hit to Brown; he previously served a three-game suspension for a hit on Brown during the 2016 playoffs.
His other fine, announced Saturday, came for a high hit on Conner.
There were calls for Burfict to be suspended as a repeat offender, but instead he was handed his biggest one-time fines.

-Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald $26,739 for unnecessary roughness.
-Broncos safety Darian Stewart, $26,739 for a horse-collar tackle.
