Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley was fined $15,750 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness for his devastating block on Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.
An NFL spokesman said Finley "unnecessarily struck a defenseless player in the head and neck area,' during a 19-17 win over the Ravens last Sunday.
"Thanks to NFL for the fine for playing football," Finley wrote on his official Twitter account.
Finley plans to appeal the fine, which came without being penalized for the block during the game.
