NFL notebook: Jets coach fined $100K for using profanity after beating Steelers
NEW YORK — Jets coach Rex Ryan was fined $100,000 for his postgame use of profanity that was picked up on video Sunday.
After the Jets beat the Steelers, 20-13, Ryan was seen yelling while walking onto the field to meet Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. Ryan has been fined twice in the past for public obscenities and was considered a repeat offender by the league.
He was upset when Steelers safety Mike Mitchell leaped over the offensive line while the Jets were doing a kneel-down at the end of the game.
Jets quarterback Michael Vick was fined $8,268 for unsportsmanlike conduct because he flipped the ball at an opponent, and defensive end Jason Babin was fined $16,537 for unnecessary roughness because he struck Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger late.
• Browns defensive end Phil Taylor was placed on injured reserve with a right-knee injury that will require surgery. Third-year pro Billy Winn is expected to start in Taylor’s spot Sunday when Cleveland hosts the Texans. Cleveland also will be without Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron (concussion).
• Texans running back Arian Foster is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Browns because of a groin injury, but the Houston Chronicle reported Foster is unlikely to play.
• Cornerback Champ Bailey will sign a one-day contract with the Broncos next week so he can retire as a member of the team, the Broncos announced. Bailey, 36, spent 10 of his 15 seasons in Denver. He was named to 12 Pro Bowls and was named All-Pro seven times.
• The fading Chargers might get help from running back Ryan Mathews and linebacker Manti Te’o against the Raiders on Sunday. Both practiced Friday and are expected to play this weekend.
• Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin is out indefinitely with a broken right ankle. McKelvin was injured while attempting to make a tackle during the first quarter of Thursday night’s 22-9 loss to the Dolphins.
• Colts cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy pleaded no contest to marijuana possession in north Florida and was ordered to pay a fine. Darry Lloyd, a spokesman for the State Attorney’s Office in Gainesville, said the former Florida standout paid $1,366 to resolve the case.
