Found November 15, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller and defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson reportedly were fined a total of $36,000 for separate hits on Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton last Sunday. Miller was fined $21,000 hitting Newton low on a roughing-the-passer penalty, the Denver Post reported Thursday. Vickerson was fined $15,000 for his horse-collar penalty while sacking Newton. Miller said he will appeal his fine. Vickerson has not said if he will appeal. "How am I supposed to know if he threw the ball or not?" Miller told the Post. "I was down on the ground -- actually the guard facemasked me and threw me into the quarterback. I'm supposed to what? Stand straight up and continue with the tackle?"

The NFL Pro-Bowl is still scheduled to take place after this season the week before the Super Bowl, unless Roger Goodell has anything to do with cancelling the All-Star game that features absolutely no defense and points galore.
