Michael Oher fully expects the NFL to fine him for accessing his Twitter account during the Ravens' 17-10 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past Sunday.

Although the starting left tackle deleted the tweet claiming that he would play against the Pittsburgh Steelers during the fourth quarter of Sunday's win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the league prohibits coaches and players from using social media like Twitter and Facebook 90 minutes before a game, during and shortly afterward.

"I'm pretty sure something's going to happen," Oher said Wednesday. "And if it does, I've just got to move and be smarter about it next time."Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was fined $25,000 for tweeting during a preseason contest in August, and teammate Terrell Owens was docked $5,000 for tweeting an hour before the Bengals and Buccaneers clashed on Oct. 10.

Oher said he wrote a message via Twitter to allay concerns that his sprained right knee was serious enough to end his season.

"I didn't realize it at the time," Oher said of the NFL's policy. "I was just letting mainly my family and friends know that I was OK. Letting them know that I was OK was way more important than getting a fine."
