ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills rookie receiver Roberts Woods has told The Associated Press he has been fined $15,000 by the NFL for punching Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones last weekend.
Woods, who was ejected after throwing the punch, says he wasn't surprised upon receiving notice from the league when he arrived for practice Thursday.
The altercation was in the third quarter of Buffalo's 19-0 win. Woods and Jones became tangled up during a running play and eventually wrestled each other to the ground. Woods was unhappy with how Jones threw him into a pile of players following the whistle. Jones was on one knee and had his back turned when Woods caught him with an uppercut across the facemask.
Woods says he regrets losing his cool.
