NEW YORK (AP) — Safety Kenny Phillips has been fined $30,000 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness, one of four New York Giants disciplined for their conduct in last Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

Phillips, a repeat offender who also was fined last season, drew this fine for striking defenseless Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson on a pass play. No penalty flag was thrown.

Other Giants disciplined were running back Andre Brown, $15,750 for a horse-collar tackle on Brandon McDonald during an interception return; and offensive linemen David Baas and Kevin Boothe, fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness at the end of the game when the Buccaneers plowed into the line as QB Eli Manning was taking a knee.

Fined $21,000 were Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons for helmet-to-helmet contact with Jets QB Mark Sanchez; Patriots LB Jerod Mayo for hitting defenseless Arizona WR Early Doucet in the head and neck; and Bills safety Da'Norris Searcy for the same offense against Chiefs TE Kevin Boss.

Seattle receiver Golden Tate drew a $21,000 fine for an illegal blindside block on Dallas LB Sean Lee. Tampa Bay LB Mason Foster's hit on Dominek Hixon that resulted in a concussion for the Giants receiver — he missed Thursday night's game at Carolina — cost Foster $21,000 for striking a defenseless player in the neck and head area.
