Fine time in the AFC West

At least three defensive players in the AFC West were fined for infractions in Week 12, according to an NFL spokesman:

Denver defensive end Darrell Reid was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness. He struck his opponent in the head area last week against the Giants with his elbow. He was receiving a warning. He is subject to larger fines and perhaps a suspension if he has similar infractions in the future.

San Diego safety Paul Oliver was fined $5,000 for unnecessary roughness after pulling the facemask of a Kansas City player Sunday. It was the second straight week Oliver received a $5,000 fine for a facemask.

Oakland defensive tackle Gerard Warren was fined $5,000 for a facemask at Dallas last Thursday.
