The NFL fined Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher $15,750 for a horse-collar tackle last Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The tackle for which Fletcher was fined came in the fourth quarter of the Redskins’ 30-24 overtime victory at FedEx Field. Fletcher pulled down San Diego running back Danny Woodhead and was called for a 15-yard personal foul.

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall was not fined for an unnecessary roughness personal foul during the San Diego game.
