Bears DE Hicks fined $33,425 by NFL for bumping official

NEW YORK (AP) — Chicago Bears defensive end Akiem Hicks has been fined $33,425 by the NFL for bumping an official in last Sunday’s win over Tampa Bay.

Hicks was not suspended although he was ejected from the Bucs game.

Hicks pushed down judge Mike Carr while he was attempting to separate Hicks and Buccaneers guard Ali Marpet after Eddie Jackson intercepted a pass.

Falcons safety Brian Poole was fined $26,739 for unnecessary roughness for a helmet-to-helmet hit against Cincinnati running back Mark Walton.

Also fined were Chargers defensive ends Melvin Ingram and Darius Philon $20,054 each for roughing the passer against San Francisco; Packers linebacker Blake Martinez 13,369 for removing his helmet against Buffalo; Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack (unnecessary roughness) and safety Tashaun Gipson (taunting) $10,026 apiece against the Jets; and Packers cornerback Josh Jackson, $10,026 for unnecessary roughness.
