A person familiar with the situation says New York Jets guard Matt Slauson has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for his season-ending block on Houston linebacker Brian Cushing.
Slauson rolled into Cushing, who tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the second quarter of the Texans' 23-17 win Monday night. Cushing was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Another person with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press that Slauson will appeal the fine. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the league doesn't announce fines until Fridays.
