The original report that came through only listed Hunt.
For the second week in a row, the National Football League has fined Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Another fine for #Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, who was docked $10,026 for a head butt (unsportsmanlike conduct) in last week’s game. #Patriots RB Sony Michel was NOT fined for lowering the helmet vs. #Colts.

Last weekend, Hunt was fined for lowering his helmet to initiate contact during Monday Night Football against the Denver Broncos. This week, it’s the post-play head-butt to Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith.
Here is the play:
Smith didn’t find the head-butt very funny and neither did the referees, who flagged Hunt for unsportsmanlike conduct on the play. Now Hunt has to pay the NFL more than $10,000.
Someone get Larry Johnson on the line.
I swear! If I didn’t have a daughter I would PAYYYYYYYYYYY everyone of one of Kareem Hunts fines!
