Source: Woodson fined $10K for throwing punch
GREEN BAY Cornerback Charles Woodson was fined $10,000 for throwing a punch in the Green Bay Packers' season opener against the New Orleans Saints, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The person requested anonymity because the fine has not been announced by the league or the team.
Woodson was penalized for unnecessary roughness in the third quarter of last Thursday's game at Lambeau Field after throwing a punch at Saints tight end David Thomas. He was not ejected, and the Packers went on to win 42-34.
After the game, Woodson acknowledged he did it out of frustration.
"Yeah, I threw a punch," he said. "Just got frustrated, the guy was holding me a little longer than I wanted. Nothing was said about it, referee-wise, quick enough, and I reacted. It is what it is, I guess."
Woodson said at the time that he expected a fine from the league.
