The Jets and Patriots scuffled at the tail end of New England’s 13-10 victory last Thursday night leading to the ejection of two Jets players.
Left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson earned one of those ejections for throwing a punch at Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard and Ferguson said Wednesday that he had been fined by the league as a result. Ferguson didn’t divulge the amount of that fine but Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports that he’ll be $15000 lighter as a result of the fracas.
Jets right guard Willie Colon was also ejected for making contact with an official during the melee but he said Wednesday he hasn’t heard from the league. Center Nick Mangold also hadn’t heard anything from the league in regard to his late low hit on Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib at the end of an interception that touched everything off. Talib said Wednesday that he didn’t think Mangold’s hit was the cheap shot that his teammates seemed to believe it was.
