Redskins' Montgomery, Giants' Joseph fined

The SportsXchange

The NFL fined the Washington Redskins' Will Montgomery and the New York Giants' Linval Joseph for their actions during an altercation in Monday night's game.

Montgomery was docked $10,000 for using a cleat to kick Joseph in the groin area. Joseph was fined $7,875 for attempting to stomp Montgomery.

Montgomery said Friday that he will appeal the fine.

"I think I have to protect myself," Montgomery said, according to The Washington Times. "If the guy is dragging me across the ground and potentially twisting my ankle or whatever else, I'm not going to let the guy drag me across the ground. And I can't push him, obviously, because I'm on the ground, so I used my leg to get him off me."
