OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The NFL has fined Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice $7,500 for grabbing the facemask of St. Louis Rams cornerback Bradley Fletcher.

Rice plans to appeal. No penalty was called on the play.

It is not illegal to stiff-arm an opponent, but the league said offensive players are not allowed to grab an opponent’s facemask.

Raven coach John Harbaugh says “he didn’t really see” whether Rice grabbed or twisted Fletcher’s facemask.

The play occurred in the Ravens’ 37-7 win over the Rams on Sept. 25.
