Tennessee Titans running back Dion Lewis will find his pockets a little lighter before the regular season begins.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Lewis was fined $28,075 for unnecessary roughness in the team's Aug. 17 preseason tilt for lowering his helmet, per a source informed of the situation.
The fine came in the preseason game against his former team, the New England Patriots. Lewis was not penalized on the play. Lewis played just 10 snaps in the game, rushing four times for 16 yards and catching one pass for nine yards.
