49ers’ Exum fined $53,482 by NFL for hit on Rams’ Woods

NEW YORK (AP) — San Francisco 49ers safety Antone Exum Jr. has been fined 53,482 by the NFL for his hit on Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods last Sunday.

Exum was penalized for unnecessary roughness on the play in which he hit Woods in his midsection in the third quarter of the 49ers’ 48-32 loss while breaking up a deep pass.

Miami’s Kiko Alonso and Robert Quinn were docked 10,026 on Saturday for unnecessary roughness, and Buffalo’s Jordan Mills was fined $13,369 for unsportsmanlike conduct after they were all ejected for their roles in a skirmish between the teams last Sunday.

With Bills quarterback Josh Allen already sliding in the third quarter of Buffalo’s 42-17 win, Alonso dived in front of him and kicked the quarterback in the helmet. A scuffle broke out amid a group of players, and Quinn ran in and dived atop the pile.
