NEW YORK (AP) -- Tennessee Titans safety Michael Griffin, and New York Jets defensive players Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples all have been fined for plays during last Sunday's game at Nashville.

The NFL confirms Friday that Griffin was fined $21,000 for a hit on Jets receiver Stephen Hill that gave Hill a concussion.

Wilkerson got a $15,750 fine for roughing the passer for a hit that injured Titans quarterback Jake Locker. Coples was docked $7,875 for a late hit on Locker on the play. They are appealing, as is Griffin.

Buffalo safety Jim Leonhard was fined $15,750 for unnecessary roughness for striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area.

Amounts are correct. Bell was for striking a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area.

Cardinals safety Yeremiah Bell was fined $15,750 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Tampa Bay TE Tim Wright, and DT Darnell Dockett was docked the same amount for a horse-collar tackle on running back Doug Martin.
