http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000281973/article/dolphins-mike-pouncey-docked-for-punching-spenceMike Pouncey's troubles continue.
The Miami Dolphins center wasn't ejected for punching the helmet of Buccaneers defensive lineman Akeem Spence, but he was fined for his ill behavior in Monday night's 22-19 loss to Tampa Bay.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Pouncey was docked $7,875 for the swipe, which drew an unnecessary roughness flag and added to an ugly month for Miami.
Here's the rest of this week's fines, per Rapoport:
In the same game, Dolphins linebacker Philip Wheeler was fined $21,000 for roughing the passer after he struck Bucs quarterback Mike Glennon in the head and neck area.
Surprisingly, no fine for Dashon Goldson's headbutt on Rishard Matthews when Rishard wasn't even wearing his helmet.
Yet I'm hearing all this outrage and talk of a suspension about the headbutt in the Thursday night game between the Colts and Titans where Erik Walden basically did the same thing to Delanie Walker.
