The NFL fined three Redskins players for penalties in last week’s preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans, the league confirmed.
Defensive end Chris Baker received a fine of $15,750 for striking the quarterback below the knees, tight end Fred Davis $7,875 for his excessive touchdown celebration, and rookie safety Bacarri Rambo also drew a fine of the same amount for a late hit.
Baker received a roughing-the-passer call in the fourth quarter of the game.
Davis received a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after he caught a three-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins in the first quarter of the game. Davis fell in the end zone and acted as if he was getting electrocuted or having convulsions, drawing the flag.
Afterward, Davis said he regretted his actions and that it had cost his team 15 yards on the ensuing kickoff.
“I don’t know what I was doing, actually,” he said. “I’ve got to put more thought into it. I cost my team a penalty, so it wasn’t a good celebration.”
Davis, who was playing in his first game since rupturing his left Achilles’ tendon in the seventh game of the 2012 season added: “I just spazzed out. … It was dumb.”
Rambo was flagged for a late hit when he shoved Titans running back Shonn Greene from behind after Greene had crossed the goal line on a 19-yard touchdown. Rambo said afterward that he didn’t realize at the time that Greene was as far into the end zone as he was.
