Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was fined $8,200 by the NFL for putting his cleat in the face of Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning during a punt return last Sunday in Pittsburgh.
NFL.com cited sources in reporting the fine Thursday.
Near the end of a long return, Lanning got in front of Brown in an attempt to make the tackle. Brown jumped and put his cleat in the punter's face during the Steelers' 30-27 victory.
Brown drew a unnecessary roughness penalty for kicking a defender in the head.
