Tyler Brayton Fined: Chris Owens Elbow Video?

A Tyler Brayton video appears to show the Panthers defensive end running off the bench to elbow Chris Owens, an Atlanta Falcons player after he ran out of bounds on a punt return.

Breaking the rules and violence are becoming even more common in NFL football games. And the league should do more about it than just slap a fine on the player.

This is bizarre and inexplicably dumb and dirty behavior by Brayton. At the same time, a coach of the New York Jets received a $25,000 fine and a suspension for the remainder of the season for his knee-trip of Nolan Carroll.

Was Tyler Brayton fined for the elbow on Chris Owens? Can anyone point me to the video of the play?

Tyler Brayton was fined $15,000 by the NFL for hitting Atlanta's Chris Owens out of bounds in last week's game. The fine was levied Friday, but not made public.

The play occurred a few weeks back, but apparently, the league couldn’t be bothered to get around to addressing it until Sal Alosi and the New York Jets had their moment in the spotlight last week.

Tyler Brayton was not and will not be suspended, and the league says the matter is closed.

This youtube video shows Tyler Brayton walking up from the bench area toward the field as Chris Owens is engaged with a Carolina defender. Tyler Brayton then drops Chris Owens with what appears to be an elbow to the head.
