Oher fined $5,000 for tweeting during game

Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher was fined $5,000 for violating the NFL's social media policy.

Michael Oher expected a fine from the league 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, 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.

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.
