The NFL has reportedly fined Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman $26,044 for his actions during the Panthers’ win over the Giants on Sunday.
Norman and Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. were involved in a number of physical altercations during Sunday’s game, leading to Beckham earning three personal fouls and Norman being flagged twice for unnecessary roughness. The most egregious offense came in the third quarter when Beckham smashed his helmet into Norman’s, and Norman responded by kneeing Beckham in the head after he had fallen to the ground.
The NFL announced Monday it would suspend Beckham for one game for his actions against the Panthers, citing “multiple violations of safety-related playing rules.” Beckham’s appeal of the suspension will be heard Wednesday.
The facemask fine for Josh Norman came on a scuffle with Beckham at 11:26 in 1Q, the one that ended with Odell Beckham yelling helmetless— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 23, 2015
