A league source tells NFL Network's Steve Wyche that the NFL only is looking at a possible fine for Belichick's illegal touching.
The NFL warned coaches and team personnel to conduct themselves in a respectful manner in the wake of Monday night's game between the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons, during which the officiating distracted from the action on the field. Sunday night's Ravens-Patriots game was a classic with great storylines that ultimately was diminished by the officiating.
Choosing not to suspend Belichick seems like the right move. While touching an official is never right, the eye in the sky doesn't lie. The contact was minor. Belichick figures to pay for the infraction later this week.
UPDATE: CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman is reporting that Belichick is expected to be fined $50,000.
