Five Falcons Players Fined for Vick-Related Uniform Violations

The NFL fined five Atlanta Falcons players a total of $47,500 for uniform violations during the team's Monday night loss to the New Orleans Saints last week.

Wide receiver Roddy White, tight end Alge Crumpler and cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and Chris Houston were fined $10,000 apiece, and wideout Joe Horn was fined $7,500.

The players wore items demonstrating support for suspended quarterback Michael Vick during the game, which came hours after Vick was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison for his role in a dogfighting operation.
