The NFL has handed down a heavy fine for Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall's actions in his team's 27-12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last month. According to a report in the Washington Post, Hall has been fined $30,000 by the league for an altercation with officials in that game, but will remain eligible to play this weekend.

The incident in question occurred near the end of the game, when Hall expressed frustration that Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders wasn't called for a post-play tussle. Hall took off his helmet and berated the head linesman of the game for not making a call. Hall insinuated that the official was firing back as well, saying he was "dishing it out just as much as I'm dishing it out." Hall had no comment on the fine as of Wednesday evening.
