Raiders SS Johnathan Abram, CB Isaiah Johnson fined for scuffle vs Broncos

Raiders SS Johnathan Abram, CB Isaiah Johnson fined for scuffle vs Broncos

The residual fines have come down for two Raiders players for their part in a scuffle during the team’s Week 10 game against the Broncos. Johnathan Abram got into it with Broncos WR Tim Patrick, with each player shoving the other. Then cornerback Isaiah Johnson came over to defend his teammate, taking a shot at Patrick as well.

The result was Patrick and Johnson getting ejected and today the fines have been handed out for all of them. Abram has been slapped with the biggest fine of $15K, while Johnson was fined nearly $5K and Patrick was fined $4,412.

That seems like a hefty fine for Abram, though it’s likely his fine is not just for the scuffle. He was also flagged for targeting on another play as well as an illegal blindside block on a punt return. He is also a repeat offender, so that could also figure into his increased fine. He also started the scuffle, so there’s that.
