Coples, the Jets’ first-round pick, was fined $10,000 on Friday for grabbing the facemask of Luck, the No. 1 overall selection, in New York’s 35-9 win Sunday. Maybin was fined $7,875 for “unnecessarily” striking Luck with his elbow after blocking him during an interception return by Antonio Cromartie. The penalty wiped out Cromartie’s touchdown.

Detroit defensive end Lawrence Jackson was fined $15,750 for hitting Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick below the knees in the Lions’ 26-23 overtime victory. Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson was hit for a $10,000 fine for simulating shooting a gun during a touchdown celebration.

Minnesota safety Harrison Smith was fined $15,750 for a horse-collar tackle on Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III in the Redskins’ 38-26 win.
