The NFL has finalized their list of players being fined for the altercation that sparked between Mason Rudolph and Myles Garrett during last week's Thursday night football game. The incident that left both benches cleared landed 33 players on that list, including 21 Steelers and 12 Browns.

Maurkice Pouncey, who's suspension was reduced to two-games, and Ogunjobi, serving a single-game, were both fined for their involvement as well.
The following players were fined $3,507 a piece for "Unnecessarily Entering a Fighting Area", an infraction that typically results in a $7,017 penalty:
