PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — The player who punched Ben Roethlisberger is going to have to pay up.
Oakland Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour was fined $25,000 for unnecessary roughness.
The hit happened in the second quarter after the Steelers made it 21-3. Roethlisberger ran up behind Seymour while celebrating a touchdown pass. That’s when Seymour turned and hit him in the helmet.
Seymour is also possibly facing suspension because it was his third on-field incident within the last two seasons.
