Steelers cornerback Artie Burns slams his helmet above the Browns' Jarvis Landry to draw an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty during the third quarter Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Artie Burns is $13,369 lighter in the wallet after he was fined for his helmet toss Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Burns received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for removing his helmet and slamming it to the ground after his tussle with receiver Jarvis Landry early in the third quarter.

Burns was the only player fined.

Browns offensive lineman Desmond Harrison was not fined for his peel-back block on Bud Dupree in the fourth quarter. Harrison was not flagged on the play.

T.J. Watt also was not disciplined for his unnecessary roughness penalty on quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the first quarter.
