The NFL fined Oakland guard Richie Incognito for two plays in the Raiders’ Week 5 win over the Chicago Bears, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
The league fined Incognito $21,054 in all for a chop block and for unnecessary roughness, Pelissero reported.
In his first season with the Raiders, Incognito was suspended for Week 1 and 2 games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
Incognito, 36, pleaded guilty to a pair of Class 1 misdemeanors after he punched a hole in the wall at the Arizona home of his 90-year-old grandmother in August 2018 and damaged the control box of a security system. Incognito reportedly was upset after the death of his father and blamed his grandmother.
Also in Arizona, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge that occurred two days after the incident at his grandmother’s home.
