Four Giants among players fined by league on Friday

Ahmad Bradshaw's chop block in the end zone cost the Giants a safety in their 29-10 loss to the Titans last Sunday. Now that penalty also has cost Bradshaw a $2,500 fine.

Bradshaw's fine was one of six imposed by the NFL from the Titans-Giants game.

The NFL on Friday also levied fines of $5,000 each against Giants linemen David Diehl, Kareem McKenzie and Adam Koets. Diehl and McKenzie were penalized for unnecessary roughness and Koets was fined for a major facemask.

The league also has fined two Titans $5,000 each: cornerback Cortland Finnegan, who threw Giants wide receiver Steve Smith to the ground by his helmet, and Jason Babin, who was fined for a late hit with the crown of his helmet.

Other fines handed out around the NFL include:

» The Detroit Lions have fined safety Louis Delmas $5,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct that occurred during the Lions' Week 3 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Delmas was punished for making an obscene gesture in the direction of a Vikings fan. The Detroit Free Press reported on Friday that Delmas said he hadn't heard anything from the league office regarding the incident.
