Ravens outside linebacker Paul Kruger was fined $5,000 by the league for a uniform violation, according to the Baltimore Sun. The NFL informed Kruger he was wearing the back of his jersey up higher than allowed and the back of his shoulder pads were exposed during the game against the Steelers on Sunday. Kruger said he would appeal the fine:
“I’m going to appeal it,” Kruger told The Baltimore Sun. “I didn’t even get a warning about it. They just fined me.”
Kruger was also called for an unnecessary roughness penalty for a hit on Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch late in the fourth quarter of the game. The penalty led to a game-winning field goal for Pittsburgh. The Steelers went on to win 23-20.
