NEW YORK -- Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was fined $25,000 by the NFL on Friday for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick last Sunday.

Miller popped Fitzpatrick in the helmet with his facemask, resulting in a penalty that led to a touchdown for the Titans in Tennessee's 51-28 loss. Titans coach Mike Munchak called the hit "disturbing and unnecessary" the day after the game.

Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall was docked $15,000 for wearing non-approved orange cleats during the Bears' win over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. Marshall was fined $10,500 by the league in October for wearing green shoes against the New York Giants.

Cowboys defensive back Orlando Scandrick was fined $21,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Marshall, who was deemed a defenceless player on the play.

Dallas' George Selvie, Baltimore's Courtney Upshaw and Buffalo's Jairus Byrd were each fined $15,750 for roughing the passer.

Pittsburgh centre Cody Wallace was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness -- for repeatedly poking Miami's Randy Starks in the backside with his left fist, trying to make the defensive tackle cough up the fumble he just recovered during the second quarter.

Wallace was fined an additional $10,000 for a late hit in the fourth quarter.

New Orleans punter Thomas Morstead was docked $7,875 for grabbing and twisting Carolina's Ted Ginn Jr. by the facemask.

Oakland's Lamarr Houston was fined $7,875 for a late hit on Jets quarterback Geno Smith, while Arizona's Darnell Dockett must pay the same amount for unnecessarily stepping on the hand of St. Louis' Chris Williams.
