The Pittsburgh Steelers got a huge win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, but it cost some of their players a pretty penny.
As a whole, three Steelers were fined a total of $94,000, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Safety Mike Mitchell’s was the most publicized, because it was originally thought that he was fined close to $49,000 for a late hit on Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. He was fined for that hit, but it came out to about $9,000. The big fine was for a helmet-to-helmet shot on running back Charcandrick West that put him in concussion protocol.
The other Steelers who were fined were outside linebacker Bud Dupree and running back Le’Veon Bell.
Dupree was fined just over $24,000 for unnecessary roughness, and Bell got hit for right around $12,000 for a touchdown celebration in which he did a quick heavy-bag session on the goal post, via Fowler.
Those players of course aren’t happy to have to spend that kind of money, but as a whole that was a great afternoon for the Steelers. At the time, the Chiefs were the only undefeated team in the league and Steelers pulled out that win on the road.
They are now hoping not to have let down at home against a divisional opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals.
