Redskins' linebacker London Fletcher was fined $10,000 for his hit on Cowboys' wide receiver Patrick Crayton in last Sunday's game.

The collision, which occured in the first quarter, came on a third down where Fletcher used a forearm to pop Crayton in the chin.

Crayton walked slowly off the field after the hit, but did return later in the game and reported no issues physically from the blow.
