NFL Fines Ravens Michael Oher For Tweet

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher has been fined $5,000 by the NFL for violating the league’s social media policy.

The NFL announced the fine Friday.

Oher issued an update on his Twitter account during a 17-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers about his sprained knee, which is against the NFL’s rules.

The lineman had expected to be fined.

Oher deleted the Tweet, but it was passed on several times. The league monitors players’ Twitter accounts.

    the nfl needs to get priorities in line geez, bad calls, illegal hits, real crimes, get a life twitter updates for crying out loud. they pay someone to monitor twitter for illegal tweets that is pretty pathetic. They have issues w the Ravens all the time anyway, just another way to line the nfl’s pockets. use that money to get some officials who are not blind and kind of understand the game huh?
