ALAMEDA, Calif. – Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver could be facing a fine from the NFL for an obscene gesture directed at the officials.
Tarver was caught on television using the one-finger gesture toward the officials after a flag was thrown on cornerback Mike Jenkins for a hit to the head of Pittsburgh running back Le'Veon Bell in Sunday's 21-18 win.
The flag was eventually picked up but that may not spare Tarver from punishment.
The NFL said Monday a decision on any fine would be announced Friday.
Tennessee defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil was fined $40,000 for a similar gesture in 2010.
