Rodgers-Cromartie fined $21K for launching

The NFL assessed its first fine of the season for an on-field infraction against Eagles safety Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Last Thursday, Rodgers-Cromartie hit Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich by lowering his helmet and leaping towards him. In the NFL rulebook, this is called launching, a 15-yard penalty that invariably leads to a fine by the NFL office.

The league confirmed to FootballZebras.com that Rodgers-Cromartie, as we predicted, was fined $21,000.

We will be tracking the fines assessed by the league for on-field incidents in the right column of this site.
