Falcons' Moore fined for hit on Cardinals' Brown

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore says he has been fined $22,050 by the NFL for a crown-of-helmet hit on Arizona wide receiver Jaron Brown last week.

The fine was Moore's first of 2014. He drew almost $75,000 in fines from the league last season. There was no penalty on the fourth-quarter play.

Moore started in Atlanta's 29-18 win over the Cardinals after missing seven games with a right shoulder injury. Moore said he had no problems with the shoulder. He participated in Thursday's practice for Monday night's game at Green Bay.

Wide receivers Roddy White (ankle) and Harry Douglas (foot) and cornerback Robert Alford (wrist) did not practice. Defensive end Stansly Maponga (elbow) and offensive guard Justin Blalock (back) were limited.
