NEW YORK — Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been fined $11,050 by the NFL for an inappropriate gesture while scoring a touchdown against Arizona last Sunday night.

Lynch appeared to grab at his groin as he leaped into the end zone to cap a 79-yard TD run while scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter of Seattle's 35-6 victory.

Oakland's Justin Tuck and San Francisco's Joe Staley were each fined $22,050 by the NFL for using "abusive" language toward officials in games last weekend.

Staley's San Francisco teammate Anquan Boldin was docked $10,000 for head-butting Chargers cornerback Shareece Wright.

Detroit's Ziggy Ansah was fined $22,050 for an illegal hit to the head of Chicago quarterback Jimmy Clausen last Sunday.
