Defensive Tackle Claims He Was Punished More Than Players Involved In Brawl

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Cullen Jenkins says he was fined for a fourth-quarter hit on Rams quarterback Shaun Hill. And the New York Giants defensive tackle isn’t happy about it, considering what went down in the first half of Sunday’s win in St. Louis.

Jenkins claimed Wednesday on Twitter that he was fined “more … than anyone” who engaged in a sideline brawl after Alec Ogletree’s hit on Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Three players — including two Giants — were ejected in the scrum.

Jenkins’ punishment hasn’t been announced by the league. The NFL has doled out fines in the neighborhood of $16,000 to players flagged for roughing the passer this season.

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said on Monday that he didn’t think any of his players would be socked in the wallet for their actions Sunday.

“To buy into all of our friskiness or all this stuff that they’re referring to, I think it would be good if they look themselves in the mirror,” Fisher said of the Giants. “They beat us physically in a number of instances, but I don’t think we had a lot to do with those things on the sideline other than the attempt to break things up.”
