NEW YORK -- Oakland defensive lineman Richard Seymour was fined $7,500 by the NFL on Friday for unnecessary roughness against Denver tackle Ryan Clady.

After a play was over, Seymour pulled Clady by the hair.

Seattle DE Patrick Kerney was fined $5,000 for roughing the passer when he unnecessarily drove Chicago's Jay Cutler to the ground.

San Francisco defensive end Justin Smith was fined $5,000 for hitting Brett Favre in the knee area during Minnesota's 27-24 win Sunday. The play occurred in the second quarter when Smith dived and hit Favre's left knee as the quarterback completed a 3-yard pass to Sidney Rice.

Smith was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness.
