Bengals' Whitworth, four Raiders linemen fined for Week 12 fight

CBSSports.com wire reports

NEW YORK -- Four members of the Oakland Raiders and one Cincinnati Bengals player were fined $26,250 each for fighting in last Sunday's game.

Cincinnati tackle Andrew Whitworth and Oakland defensive linemen Desmond Bryant, Lamarr Houston, Tommy Kelly and Matt Shaughnessy drew the fines Friday.

The brawl started after a Bengals play was whistled dead because of a false start. Houston tackled quarterback Andy Dalton after the whistle, and Whitworth confronted the lineman, going facemask to facemask.

Later in the week, Whitworth called some of the Raiders "cowards" for hitting him during an on-field skirmish.
