Silver Minings: Raiders QB Nathan Petermen receives a fine from the NFL.

Nathan Petermen receives a fine for lowering his helmet

NFL: Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angeles Rams Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Las Vegas Raiders backup quarterback Nathan Petermen has started and played most of the preseason. He has the highest amount of passing yards and is number one in passing attempts as well.

Now he joins as the number one quarterback in total fines. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network announced he received a penalty for lowering his head vs the Los Angeles Rams.

It was odd for Petermen to receiver a fine for this, especially since he took the brunt of the hit. The NFL usually protects quarterbacks over other plays, but this was not the case regarding the Petermen situation.

The former Pittsburg Panther is getting all the snaps again for preseason Week 3. Hopefully, he keeps his head up and avoids another $5500 out of his weekly paycheck.
