GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that cornerback Charles Woodson has been fined $10,000 for throwing a punch in the Green Bay Packers’ season opener against the New Orleans Saints.
The person requested anonymity because the fine has not been announced by the league or the team.
Woodson was called for a personal foul in the third quarter after throwing a punch at Saints tight end David Thomas. He was not ejected.
After the game, Woodson admitted he did it out of frustration after “the guy was holding me a little longer than I wanted.” Woodson expected a fine.
