NEW YORK — Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for striking an opponent in the head.

Lockette was ejected from last Sunday's game at Kansas City for hitting Chiefs defensive back Kurt Coleman after Coleman shoved him in the back.

Atlanta receivers Roddy White and Devin Hester each were fined $8,268 on Friday for their role in a scrap with the Panthers in the third quarter last Sunday. Hester dived headfirst into a pile trying to knock Panthers cornerback Josh Norman off teammate Harry Douglas. White struck another player in the head area.

Douglas got the same $8,268 fine for pulling down Norman by the facemask.

Panthers safety Roman Harper was docked the same amount for unnecessary roughness when he hit Hester.
