Haynesworth struck Jacobs after a play ended, and the running back retaliated.

"I guess they did it, but that was expected," Jacobs said of the fines Thursday.

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall also was involved in the scuffle, but he wasn't fined.

The league also fined Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams $5,000 for a tackle at the knees of Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Moore during Sunday night's game.
