Ware, Rashad Johnson hit with hefty NFL fines

Denver Broncos defensive end DeMarcus Ware and Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson each have been fined $17,363 by the NFL for infractions during last week's games.

The league said Friday that Ware was fined for roughing the passer, hitting Kansas City's Alex Smith low on Sept. 17. Johnson was docked for a helmet-to-helmet hit in Arizona's victory last Sunday at Chicago. Johnson was not penalized on the play.

Broncos DT Malik Jackson was fined $8,681 for unnecessary roughness against the Chiefs for his late hit on Jamaal Charles.

Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright was fined $10,000 for being ejected for the Seahawks' loss to the Packers. Green Bay guard T.J. Lang, Buffalo safety Aaron Williams and Titans receiver Harry Douglas each were fined $8,681 for unnecessary roughness.
