Steelers Foster Fined $8,268 For Fighting, Gay Not Fined For Taunting

Pittsburgh Steelers guard Ramon Foster practiced his helmet toss Sunday late in the win this past Sunday over the Kansas City Chiefs and on Wednesday he was fined for his actions.

Foster, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, was fined $8,268 for fighting in game.

The rumble took place late in the fourth quarter when Foster took exception to the way that Chiefs defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson and linebacker Josh Martin bull-rushed Steelers offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum during a short field goal attempt.

As you can see in the gif below, Martin gets a little help from Vickerson from behind on the play and all three nearly crashed into Steelers punter Brad Wing, who holds for kicker Shaun Suisham.

Foster went right after Vickerson and eventually ripped his helmet off as several other players proceeded to get into some pushing and shoving. Foster was penalized for unnecessary roughness for his actions.

In somewhat related news, as expected, cornerback William Gay was not fined after being penalized for taunting in the fourth quarter following a stop by linebacker Lawrence Timmons.
