Haloti Ngata fined $8,268 for kicking Redskins offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao

Ngata kicked Lauvao after Lauvao crushed Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks toward the end of a 19-yard run by Redskins running back Alfred Morris in the first quarter.

"When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just [upset] that he was doing that and just nudged him," Ngata said last week following the Redskins game "Kind of a heat-of-the-moment thing. That was the only thing. I was just trying to protect my player.

"No disrespect to Shawn because we know each other. It was the heat of the moment, and just was mad that he tried a late hit."
