Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Woods was fined $15,000 by the NFL Friday for throwing a punch at Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones during last Sunday's game.
Woods was ejected in the third quarter of Buffalo's 19-0 victory after he swung at Jones' helmet while the two players fell to the ground during a play.
"Of course you shouldn't throw a punch in a football game, but if you're playing outside the rules, sometimes you got to be a man sometimes," Woods said Monday. "But I learned my lesson and just can't do it again."
Woods has 39 receptions for 560 yards in 13 games this year.
