The scrum that formed after a fumble in the Giants' 17-16 loss to the Redskins Monday night resulted in Giants defensive tackle Linval Joseph being fined $7,875, a person with knowledge of the fines confirmed. That person requested anonymity because the league did not announce them.
Redskins running back Alfred Morris fumbled in the third quarter, and players piled up to recover the loose ball. Joseph said he saw Montgomery dive at a teammate's shoulder, so he began to pull Montgomery out of the pile by his left leg. Montgomery kicked at Joseph's groin area, after which Joseph raised his right foot to stomp on him -- but Joseph stopped himself before following through, which he admitted was a "challenge."
"I started, then I stopped. I thought about it," Joseph said after the game, explaining that he didn't want to hurt the team or get fined. "He dove on somebody's shoulder, and there was no way he was going to get the ball, so I was trying to get him off the pile." Source: Newark Star Ledger Attached Thumbnails

Fantasy Football News - Fantasy owners were counting on a healthy Nicks to show up for the playoffs and news on Thursday was that Nicks did not practice due to a sore knee. After practicing on Wednesday, it was a bit of a surprise to learn he wasn’t on the field Thursday. Every one can take a sigh of relief, Nicks was back on the practice field for the Giants on Friday.
The Giants like what they have seen from CB Prince Amukamara now more than they did even in the beginning of the season. Hes contesting the run well, tackling and, most importantly, judging deep passes far better than before. In the past, he would mistime his break, get caught looking into the backfield or interfere with receivers. Now, it appears he has far better recognition...
