Tennessee Titans assistant Chuck Cecil gives refs some flip

The Titans' game against the Denver Broncos is likely to be an expensive one for Tennessee defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil.

He apparently took issue with a call by officials and extended his middle finger in the universal gesture of disdain, a move that was captured by CBS cameras (see image here) and would seem destined to draw a fine by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Pro Football Talk the fine "will depend on the full set of circumstances."

Titans owner Bud Adams was fined $250,000 by Goodell for making the same gesture with both hands last November.
