NEW YORK -- Denver Broncos defensive end Von Miller was fined $25,000 by the NFL on Friday for his hit below the knee of Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman last week.

Miller was penalized for roughing the passer in the second quarter of the Broncos' 31-23 win over the Buccaneers last Sunday. Miller was fined $21,000 last month for a similar infraction against Carolina quarterback Cam Newton.

Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher was fined $21,000 for a horse-collar tackle on Seattle's Leon Washington, his second fine in two weeks. Urlacher, penalized for the tackle in the Bears' 23-17 loss last Sunday, also was fined last week for a horse-collar tackle of Minnesota's Adrian Peterson.

Seahawks defensive tackle Alan Branch was docked $7,875 for his late hit on Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

Green Bay's Tramon Williams and Jacksonville's Jason Babin were each fined $21,000 for helmet-to-helmet hits in their games last week.

Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley was fined $15,750 for his horse-collar tackle of Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck late in the Lions' 35-33 loss.

Washington centre Will Montgomery was fined $10,000 for kicking New York Giants defensive lineman Linval Joseph, who was docked $7,875 for unnecessary roughness. He pulled on Montgomery's leg first during a pileup on a fumble and then raised his right foot to kick back at him, but stopped himself before doing so.

San Francisco linebacker NaVorro Bowman also got fined $10,000 for kicking at a St. Louis Rams offensive lineman, while 49ers teammate Dashon Goldson has to pay $7,875 for a late hit on quarterback Sam Bradford.

Minnesota linebacker Jasper Brinkley was fined $7,875 for grabbing Green Bay wide receiver Randall Cobb by the facemask. Teammate Everson Griffen was fined $15,750 for his late hit on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
