NFL fines Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry $48,620

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry has been fined $48,620 by the NFL for his role in a Week 17 brawl following a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills.

Miami running back Kenyan Drake and Buffalo cornerback Leonard Johnson were fined $12,154 apiece for the same incident. Landry and Drake were ejected following the fight, which resulted in 15-yard penalties against each.

Following his touchdown catch, Landry shoved Bills safety Jordan Poyer, setting off the fight. Drake threw his helmet after getting pulled from the pile.

Landry said he was reacting in self-defense.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase described the altercation as embarrassing.

Landry was fined $48,618 last season for grabbing his crotch and spiking his helmet during a touchdown celebration.

The NFL also levied fines Friday against a pair of Carolina Panthers.

Defensive end Wes Horton was assessed $18,231 and safety Jairus Byrd fined $24,309 for illegal hits in the Week 17 loss to the Falcons.

Horton was fined for a helmet-to-helmet hit on quarterback Matt Ryan. Byrd’s fine stemmed from a hit on receiver Mohamed Sanu.
