GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers cornerback Charles Woodson has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for throwing a punch in last week's season opener against the New Orleans Saints, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.
The person requested anonymity because the fine hasn't been announced by the league or the team.
After the game, Woodson acknowledged he did it out of frustration.
"Yeah, I threw a punch," he said. "Just got frustrated, the guy was holding me a little longer than I wanted. Nothing was said about it, referee-wise, quick enough, and I reacted. It is what it is, I guess."
Woodson said at the time that he expected a fine from the league.
