Another day, another fine.
LB Von Miller became the latest Bronco to become the subject of league discipline when he was fined $15,750 for a hit on Houston QB Matt Schaub that resulted in a roughing-the-passer penalty.
The hit came a snap before teammate Joe Mays was involved in a helmet-to-helmet collision with Schaub, which resulted in a $50,000 fine and a one-game suspension for Mays.
Miller was fined three known times last season: $15,000 for a hit on Raiders QB Carson Palmer, $25,000 for a hit on Jets QB Mark Sanchez and $7,500 for blocking New England's Ryan Wendell after the whistle blew late in a season-ending playoff loss. In the hits on Palmer and Sanchez, Miller was cited for hitting the QBs in the chest with his helmet.
The Broncos have been cited by the league for at least $149,625 in fines this season, although coach John Fox is appealing his fine and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio is expected to follow suit for their Week 2 tirades against the officials.
