Bills DE Hughes gets double fine from NFL
NEW YORK (AP) Buffalo Bills defensive Jerry Hughes has been fined more than $30,000 by the NFL for incidents in last weekend's loss to the New York Giants.
Hughes, who has a history of verbally admonishing game officials, was fined $23,152 Friday for abusive language toward an official. He also was docked $8,681 for unnecessary roughness for head-butting Giants rookie tackle Ereck Flowers.
New York receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was fined $8,681 for throwing punches and striking Buffalo's Duke Williams in that game.
Rams WR Stedman Bailey used the football as a pillow after catching a touchdown pass at Arizona. That cost him $8,681 for unsportsmanlike conduct.
