Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jalen Warren’s wallet may be a little lighter.
The NFL fined Warren $48,333 for his “illegal use of a helmet” in Monday’s win over the Cleveland Browns, according to the league’s Game Day Accountability Weekly Report.
At the end of a catch-and-run reception in the second quarter, Warren lowered his helmet and appeared to make contact with Browns defensive back Juan Thornhill, but the referees did not throw a flag on the play.
