Rams’ Todd Gurley, Trumaine Johnson Fined For Cheap Shots Vs. Patriots

Two Los Angeles Rams players were fined Friday for illegal plays made during Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots.

Running back Todd Gurley was docked $9,115 by the NFL for a chop block on Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower. Gurley was penalized on the play, and Hightower briefly left the game before returning.

Cornerback Trumaine Johnson was fined twice as much ($18,231) for his facemask on Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount, which somehow did not draw a flag on the field.

Blount carried the ball 18 times for 88 yards and one touchdown in the Patriots’ 26-10 victory at Gillette Stadium.
