The punishments continue to be handed down for the events that occurred between the Raiders and Broncos Sunday in Oakland. The latest are the fines.

First up is Gabe Jackson, who received a fine of $30,387 for making contact with an official, causing the official to fall to the ground and suffer a bruised rib.

The incident occurred during a fight that broke out after a shoving match between Raiders receiver Michael Crabtree and Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib. Jackson, Crabtree, and Talib were all ejected. Only Jackson escaped suspension, presumably because his contact with the official appeared to be incidental. Much to the chagrin of the Referee Association.

Later, in the second quarter, Raiders receiver Amari Cooper was knocked unconscious by a helmet to helmet hit hit from Darian Stewart. It yielded a roughing penalty as well as a fine of $24,309.

Amari Cooper’s concussion is severe enough that he is officially OUT for the Raiders game against the Giants this Sunday.
