NFL Issues Fines For Matt Kalil And Jasper Brinkley, But Not Jared Allen

The Minnesota Vikings ended the weekend on a pretty sour note last Sunday when Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts handed the team its first loss of the season. Unfortunately some Vikings were also hit quite hard in the pocketbook, though Jared Allen somehow avoided the wrath of the NFL.

Allen complained quite a bit about a personal foul penalty he was called for, leading most to believe he'd be fined for complaining about the officiating if not for the hit. That wasn't the case, however, as 1500 ESPN was able to track down the fines from last weekend's game -- and although quite a few Vikings were included, Allen wasn't one of them.

Rookie offensive lineman Matt Kalil was fined $7,875 for a late hit on Colts nose tackle Martin Tevaseu while Jasper Brinkley was fined the same amount for the altercation he was involved with alongside Colts tight end Dwayne Allen.

As far as the Colts are concerned, offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo and Allen were both fined $7,875 as well.
