Ravens linebacker and special-teams ace Albert McClellan has been fined $8,268 by the NFL for his personal foul against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to sources.

McClellan, who leads the Ravens with eight special-teams tackles, is expected to appeal the punishment.

McClellan was flagged for his hit during a punt that was fair caught by Jacoby Jones. On the coaches' video, McClellan can be seen knocking down a Steelers player with what appeared to be a legal block from the side. McClellan may have been unaware that the whistle had blown because he was far away from the official.

The NFL has also fined Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah $8,268 for his altercation where he struck defensive end Cam Heyward, according to a source. Zuttah was flagged for unnecessary roughness following a Ravens touchdown.

McClellan and Zuttah's fines aren't expected to be the only one for the Ravens in what likely shapes up as an expensive Friday.

Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs is expected to be fined for his controversial tackle from behind on Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount.

Other potential fines from Sunday's game:

* Cornerback Lardarius Webb for a horse-collar tackle on wide receiver Antonio Brown. Webb may avoid a fine, but that infraction carries a $16,637 fine for a first offense under the NFL fine schedule.

* Outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw for his late hit on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, which is due a $16,637 fine for a first offense and $33,075 for a second offense. Upshaw was fined $16,637 earlier this season for a roughing the passer penalty against Roethlisberger.

* Outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil for unnecessary roughness. He shoved Steelers left tackle Kelvin Beachum after a play was over while trying to defend Suggs after his personal foul.

* Steelers nose tackle Steve McClendon is expected to be fined $16,637 for roughing the passer after he drove Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco into the ground.

* Steelers linebacker Vince Williams could draw a $8,268 fine for taunting.
