Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie fined

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been fined $21,000 for his hit on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich, a league official confirmed to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

The fine stems from a play in the first quarter of an Aug. 9 game.

As Leftwich was scrambling out of the pocket and flipped the ball away, Rodgers-Cromartie launched himself into the signal-caller. Rodgers-Cromartie was called for unnecessary roughness on a defenseless player.
