Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was fined $11,576 for his touchdown celebration against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Mark Kaboly.

Following his 71-yard punt return against the Colts on Sunday, Brown jumped onto the goalpost in an act of celebration. He was flagged on the play for using the post as a prop. 

Brown was previously fined $8,200 in Sept. 2014 for kicking Cleveland Browns punter Spencer Lanning in the face.

Brown won NFL Player of the Week honors on special teams after becoming the first player in Steelers’ history to record two offensive touchdowns, as well as a punt-return touchdown in the same game.
