Fighting in training camp is one thing, but fighting during a preseason game will cost you, as Steelers CB Ike Taylor and Giants WR Hakeem Nicks found out.

Taylor and Nicks were find $10,000 each for unnecessary roughness after the two scuffled four plays into the Steelers' 24-17 victory over the Giants last Saturday. Both players were ejected from the game.

Nicks claimed he was just trying to finish a block when "the next thing I knew, he was throwing punches," he said.
