Fines: Santana Moss docked $22,050 for outburst

Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss is about to pay for his outburst toward an official in Sunday's 24-13 loss to the New York Giants.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Moss was fined $22,050 for abusive and insulting language toward a referee. The veteran wideout confronted game officials after a touchdown run by Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was reviewed and ruled a fumble and touchback on the final play of the half.

Moss was thrown out of the game for what referee Jeff Triplette described as "very, very inappropriate language that was derogatory towards the official," according to Newsday's Tom Rock.

The ugliness of this Redskins season -- it just won't quit.
