Sanders and the Steelers Fined for “Fake” Injury vs Bengals

The NFL has determined that the “injury” Emmanuel Sanders suffered vs the Bengals was indeed a fake, and the team was fined along with the wide out.

The NFL has fined both the Steelers and Sanders a whopping $50,000 for faking an injury in an October 21st game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Steelers were fined $35,000 and Sanders $15,000 by the league for the incident, which occurred in the final minutes of a 24-17 victory against the Bengals.

Sanders said his leg cramped when he fell to the ground after the play with 5:42 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Steelers leading, 24-17. They went on to win the game by a touchdown.
