NEW YORK (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson has been fined $24,309 by the NFL after being penalized twice for unsportsmanlike conduct during the same drive last weekend.
Jackson was called for roughing the passer on Oakland's Derek Carr, then he protested the call and was penalized for using abusive language toward an official. Four plays later, Jackson was again called for unsportsmanlike conduct after a field goal and then ejected. Under new NFL rules, players are tossed if they are penalized twice for unsportsmanlike conduct in the same game.
Wide receiver Marqise Lee, Jackson's teammate, was docked $12,154 on Friday after he received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for using a racial slur in the Jaguars' 33-16 loss.
Baltimore's Za'Darius Smith was fined $18,231 for roughing the passer on the New York Jets' Ryan Fitzpatrick.
