Ben Roethlisberger was injured after throwing a pair of passes on a drive late in the second quarter of a game early in the season against the Seahawks. Mason Rudolph entered the game in relief.
This is not the first time Roethilisberger's injury has resulted in fines from the league. Roethlisberger was fined himself in early October for wearing an Apple Watch while on the sideline.
