NEW YORK -- The NFL has fined Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan $10,000 for unnecessary roughness in last Sunday's loss to Denver.

Finnegan hit Broncos guard Chris Kuper after Kuper's helmet was off. The league warned Finnegan that similar infractions in the future can lead to increased discipline.

Saints linebacker Marvin Mitchell was hit for $10,000 for a major facemask penalty against Carolina.

Also fined on Friday: Eagles safety Quintin Mikell, $7,500 for a horse-collar tackle on Redskins receiver Santana Moss, and Giants linebacker Jonathan Goff, $7,500 for helmet-to-helmet contact with Bears quarterback Todd Collins, and $5,000 for unnecessary roughness.
