NEW YORK (AP) — Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway has been fined $21,000 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness.

Greenway struck Lions receiver Calvin Johnson in the head and neck area in last Sunday’s victory over Detroit.

Also fined Friday were Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins, Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji, and Cardinals placekicker Jay Feely, all docked $7,875 for unnecessary roughness.

Jenkins grabbed Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers’ facemask and also poked Rodgers in the right eye. Raji struck Saints long snapper Justin Drescher with his knee. Feely struck an Arizona player late during a kickoff return.
