Report: Steelers DL Al Woods Fined For Facemask Penalty On Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
Another week another fine for a Pittsburgh Steelers player as defensive lineman Al Woods has reportedly been fined $7,875 for his first-quarter face mask on Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, according to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The play in question happened during the Vikings opening offensive possession of the game during a second down run by Peterson and you can see the replay below.
Woods is the third Steelers player to be fined this season. Running back Jonathan Dwyer was $21,000 last week for lowering his head and hitting Chicago Bears safety Chris Conte at the conclusion of a long run while wide receiver Antonio Brown was fined over $16,000 for two infractions in the same game.
