NEW YORK >> Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been fined $24,309 for an illegal crackback block against the Houston Texans last weekend.

Fitzgerald was assessed a 15-yard penalty after Adrian Peterson was stopped for no gain on the play, which occurred midway through the first quarter of the Cardinals’ 31-21 loss in Houston on Sunday.

Seattle safety Earl Thomas was also docked $24,309 for his hit on Atlanta’s Levine Toilolo, who caught a touchdown pass to give the Falcons a 31-20 lead in the third quarter on Monday night. Thomas was penalized for hitting Toilolo in the helmet with his shoulder in the end zone.

Kansas City linebacker Terrance Smith was fined the same amount for his blindside helmet-to-helmet hit on Giants long snapper Zak DeOssie during a punt return late in the second quarter of New York’s 12-9 win.
