NEW YORK (AP) — Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been fined $21,000 by the NFL for his hit last week on New York Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill with the crown of his helmet.

The league announced the fine Friday. Burfict was called for a personal foul, his fifth of the season, in the Bengals' 49-9 rout of the Jets.

New York wide receiver David Nelson was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness. On a running play, he lowered a shoulder into Cincinnati's Adam "Pacman" Jones, and the two needed to be separated after the play.

Denver's Wesley Woodyard and Atlanta's Osi Umenyiora and William Moore were all fined $15,750 for roughing-the-passer hits.
